Postpartum visits are important to your health
At Geisinger, your care does not end once you have delivered your baby. We offer a range of services, including postpartum support, for new moms to help them transition into life with a newborn.
The postpartum visit is typically scheduled within six weeks of delivery, during the time when moms are experiencing many physical and emotional changes. This visit is an important component of women's health care. During this visit, your provider will address the following topics with you:
- Complications that may have occurred during pregnancy
- Health of the newborn
- Breastfeeding concerns or questions
- Plans for contraception
- Emotional concerns
The postpartum visit is imperative for your health and wellness post-delivery. If your postpartum visit has not yet been scheduled, please contact your provider to schedule an appointment.
