Natural Birth Postpartum Care

THE RECOVERY

Care and support are provided for you until 6 weeks after the birth. Your midwife will be available to you 24/7 with any questions or concerns. Masen Midwifery LLC serves Lafayette, Louisiana and the Acadiana area.

Before the birth, we will discuss all that you need for your postpartum so you can prepare for a smooth recovery.

After delivery, a few visits will be scheduled, the first being at 24 hours after birth. We do in home heart screening for the newborn and ensure breastfeeding is established at that time. In addition, we will make sure recovery is going well for you and encourage rest, good nutrition, and support.

We collaborate with your pediatrician and provide a pediatric referral so that baby can be evaluated by the pediatrician of your choice.

If for any reason you have a in hospital birth, we offer postpartum care, in addition to what your physician may provide.

If you should need additional support, we will provide resources to support you during your postpartum.
