Postpartum Care

Adjusting to the arrival of a newborn is a very important time in your family’s life — equally as important as the preparation for and the celebration of the birth itself.

Something that sets Stand & Deliver Midwifery’s care apart from standard postpartum care is our regular postpartum visits that are for both mother and baby. Part of our commitment to the midwifery model of care includes seeing mother and baby as a healthy unit in both pregnancy and postpartum.

What To Expect

  • Multiple individualized visits/contact and an an office visit at 72 hours to help support your recovery and breastfeeding.


During your visits, your midwives

  • assess how you and your baby are doing overall.

  • ensure your baby is nursing properly.

  • determine if you need extra assistance or support with your recovery and/or breastfeeding.

  • perform metabolic and congenital heart defect screenings.

Our objective is to assure you that you have all the support and assistance you need to recover and properly care for your baby.
