Postnatal care

Congratulations! You've had your baby...

The birth of a baby is a very exciting time for everyone and many people will want to come and see you and baby.  These early hours and days are also important time for you and your baby to get to know each other, establish feeding and recover from the birth which can be a tiring experience.  Although a cot is provided we encourage skin to skin and loan slings so support this, keeping baby close makes them feel safe and loved and produces happy love hormones which help you to bond as a family.
