Postnatal Care

Postnatal Care is the care you receive after the birth. Our Postnatal Care Packages include a home visit, midwifery home care and 24/7 telephone support by one of our midwifery team.

Many new mothers have commented that caring for their newborn baby in the early days and weeks at home was the hardest part of becoming a parent. We know how daunting it is leaving hospital with a brand new baby, and how reassuring it is to have kind, experienced, professional help at hand to answer all your questions and advise on any aspects of baby or new mother care.

Our midwives have many years of midwifery experience, are up to date with current practice, and most are mothers themselves. They are kind, easy to talk to, and very down to earth.

We will replace NHS midwifery visits, working together if you or your baby needs referral back into hospital, and will have the time and flexibility that an overloaded service cannot always offer.

The service is available to all mothers whichever hospital their babies were born in, NHS or privately. The areas covered are Barnet, Bushey, Edgware, Finchley, Radlett, St Albans, Stanmore, Hemel Hempstead and Watford. If you live close to these areas but your home town is not stated here then please get in touch.

Parents who already have a child can find life is very different with two children; our visiting service is for all parents, not just first timers, as we can give you lots of support and survival tips for the first weeks.

If you live quite a distance from the local area, the midwives are sometimes able to come and see you, but there may need to be an additional travel charge, which will be discussed with you at the time of booking.
