Postnatal Care Services
The midwives at MotherNurture are very focused on what your individual aims and goals are. The team offer unbiased 'logical' advice focusing on normal maternal and newborn changes. MotherNurture midwives have many years of knowledge and experience in the whole pregnancy and postnatal fields, both professionally and personally. MotherNurture will also leave you with resources to help build your confidence and knowledge throughout your parenting years.
The visits are tailored and modified to each individual client. As a standard we usually perform the first three weeks as postnatal home (long) visits. This is offered to clients within a reasonable distance of metropolitan Adelaide. Weeks four to six are usually conducted in either of our clinic locations at North Eastern Community Hospital or Brighton.
Initially visits are twice weekly until breastfeeding and any other issues resolved. Then visits move to weekly or as required.
A phone support service is offered for all clients (8am - 8pm)
Visits attract Medicare Rebates, please see our Pricing Information.
All services listed are available, services and schedule of visits are modified to each clients needs.
