Pregnancy and the birth of a child are happy, but also radical events. Your body needs time to recover. It is normal for this to take several weeks to months. Emotions play an important role. A baby changes a lot in your daily life. Give yourself time to get used to all these changes. Your body needs to recover, the hormones in your body change.
During the maternity week, the midwife will visit you at home, usually on the 2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th day, between 09:00 – 13:00. When there are many deliveries, I can occasionally come by in the afternoon. If problems arise during the maternity week, the obstetrician will make an extra visit in between. During these visits, you and the baby will be checked. The midwife can also advise on breastfeeding and advise the maternity nurse on her support during the maternity period.
