The immediate days after the birth of your baby are some of the most special days of your life. While in hospital, Dr Skilbeck provides in-patient care for women both after vaginal and surgical delivery. Midwives attend to you and help with all aspects of caring for your baby, breast feeding and general maternal wellbeing.
For complicated deliveries, Dr Skilbeck offers follow up at two weeks and for all women, a postnatal visit at six weeks is recommended. These appointments provide an opportunity to discuss general health for women, pap smears, discussion around contraception and ensures no major issues have arisen since birth.
Dr Skilbeck has a close relationship to allied health professionals who can also help optimise your postnatal recovery including physiotherapy, lactation support, mental health care and dieticians.
