Post-partum follow-up

The post-partum consultation should take place in the first 4-6 weeks after the delivery.

It´s the moment where the doctor will evaluate your well-being after the delivery, will perform the gynaecological exam (inspection of the vulva, perineum, vagina, vaginal discharge, uterine involution), will assess the healing of eventual episiotomy or sutured wounds, will perform a breast examination and evaluate your psychological state.

The doctor will prescribe you breast-feeding supplements, iron in case of anemia and a safe contraceptive method if desired.

It´s highly advisable that women with medical diseases or with diabetes or hypertension during pregnancy are checked in this phase.
