Most women who go through natural birth will sustain perineal trauma, ranging from bruising, tearing to episiotomy.
early detection of perineal wound infection is an important part of a midwife’s postnatal role. the midwife also offers advice to women who have just given birth on ways to relieve perineal pain and promote wound healing.
Babies too, can have health issues such as some yellowing of the skin or neonatal jaundice. high levels of bilirubin can damage the brain. therefore, early detection of neonatal jaundice is crucial.
all babies should be seen by a health care provider within the first five days until they are two weeks old to check for possible jaundice.
Midwife visitation provides the benefits of one-on-one consultation, personal examinations for your wife, your baby. She will also advise new mothers on breastfeeding techniques or challenges.
