Baby & Mother Care

Congratulations! Now that your baby has been born you have begun on one of life’s greatest journeys—the journey of parenthood, with all its joy and wonder.

Your body will undergo many changes both physically and emotionally. Many of these changes happen in the first 6 weeks, called postpartum. Postpartum is a time of healthy change. The changes are to help you restore your body to its non-pregnant state and to enable you to feed your baby.

During your stay, midwives and nurses will provide education and information to enable you to confidently care for yourself and your baby in preparation for going home.
