Lying-in has been part of all cultures, all times. Women are in special need for protection and rest 6 to 12 weeks after delivery.
From a medical prospective, the effects of birth are being processed during this period and hormonal change occurs same as during the initial stage of pregnancy.
During that time as midwives we initially provide support daily and subsequently less frequently.
Apart from medical follow-up examinations, like weight control and navel care, we will attach particular importance to the breastfeeding relationship between the mother and the child. After delivery every woman is entitled to 12 weeks of midwifery care. This will be covered by health insurance. Please note that I only do house calls for special cases. You can, regardless of where you gave birth, make an appointment with me or with one of my colleagues at our midwife practice.
