Taking a new baby home can be both exciting and a little intimidating, especially for first-time parents.
Your postpartum care appointment will help you make the transition from the hospital to home easily and safely.
When you leave the Family Maternity Center, you'll have a postpartum appointment scheduled for three-to-four days later at the Postpartum Care Center.
Our nurse specialist will examine both you and your baby to make sure you are mending and thriving.
If a problem is identified, the nurse specialist will contact your baby's care provider right away.
Your questions, answered
This is also an opportunity to ask any questions that have popped up since you took your baby home.
After your visit, you'll be reassured that your baby is healthy and that you are on the mend.
Who can get an appointment
Postpartum Care Center services are available to all families, whether they gave birth at EvergreenHealth or elsewhere.
The visit's fee is minimal, and may be covered by your health insurance. Check with your carrier.
