Postnatal Care

It is only common knowledge that the period immediately following delivery is extremely crucial for the mother, and requires constant care for up to eight weeks. At Motherhood, we ensure that both you and your bundle of joy are well taken care of, in this vital period.

Postnatal care or PNC is specialized care for the mother that begins immediately after delivery, up to a period of roughly eight weeks. The care includes prevention, elimination, early detection and cure of health complications (if any), counselling on breastfeeding, immunization, an interactive session on the importance of birth spacing and maternal nutrition, and so on.

After delivery, mothers go through several emotional and physical changes, as they learn to take care of their new-born. Therefore, postpartum or postnatal care involves proper rest, nutrition, and vaginal care for the mother, facilitating a quicker and healthier recovery.

What does postnatal care typically involve?
An essential component of postnatal care is midwifery. If all is well with the mother and the baby, she is discharged home between 6-24 hours after delivery, and is in the safe hands of the community midwifery team. The midwives and/or the support workers help the mother adjust to her life with the new baby. This normally includes feeding and baby care, as well as providing emotional support.
