Postpartum Care Q&A

Why is postpartum care important?

Postpartum care is important because it manages your physical and emotional well-being after you give birth to your baby. Pregnancy and childbirth are major life events that bring a lot of joy and change.

After the birth of your baby, you may feel a roller coaster of emotions. Some of these you may expect, some you may not. The demands of a newborn baby may compound these feelings, affecting your physical and emotional well-being.

The postpartum period is a critical part of the pregnancy process. Postpartum care provides the support you and your baby need to heal and bond. 

Newma is a women’s health practice that provides postpartum and newborn care, caring for mom and baby together. 

When should I schedule postpartum care?

You can start postpartum care at Newma at your baby’s first newborn care visit. 

During this initial visit, your provider asks how you feel, sleep, and eat. They perform a physical exam and spend time talking to you about life with your newborn. 

You may schedule your next postpartum care visit at your next newborn care appointment. 

What can I expect from postpartum care?

You can expect holistic postpartum care from the team at Newma. They aim to protect your health while promoting the well-being of you and your baby throughout the postpartum and early motherhood period.

In addition to routine postpartum care, Newma also offers services that help you and your baby, including:

Lactation Support

Newma has a team of international board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLC) who provide lactation support throughout your entire breastfeeding journey. They can talk to you about breastfeeding before you have the baby and provide guidance during those early days after delivery.

The team also helps you through breastfeeding challenges like painful latching, lip or tongue tie, and low milk supply. 

Therapeutic Ultrasound

Newma has a therapeutic ultrasound machine to treat clogged milk ducts and mastitis. This noninvasive treatment restores milk flow, reduces pain, and may prevent the need for antibiotics.

Chiropractic Care

Childbirth affects skeletal alignment. Newman has a chiropractor who specializes in postpartum chiropractic care, improving alignment, posture, and overall well-being.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle therapy that restores the flow of the cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system. This therapy relaxes tight tissues and gives you a general sense of well-being.
