Guidance as you come home from the hospital
How does it work?
I will visit you the day after you come home from the hospital for a complete care of the mother and the baby.
I will answer all your questions and will also review with you :
En plus de répondre à toutes vos questions, je (re)vois avec vous:
- the breastfeeding positions
- the baby carrying
- how to bathe the baby
- other cares for the baby…
Medicaly speaking, I will take care of the following :
- weighting the baby
- blood tests for the mother and the baby (Guthrie, bilirubin,…)
- removing the surgical staples if you give birth by cesarean
- taking care of an episiotomy
How many visits?
I will visit you as much as you need, until you feel that you do not need any other advice and that your health and the baby’s health are satisfactory.
You can receive up to about 10 consultations that are covered by the Belgian mutual health-insurance.
If necessary, we can of course keep in touch by phone between two appointements.
A consultation takes about one hour, depending of the needs.
I take the necessary time to establish trust between us and to make sure you feel comfortable.
At what time?
I can usually visit you between 9AM and 6PM, but being a freelance, my schedules are flexible!
You can find on the following page the list of the towns I serve.
