Once you have given birth, a birth notice will be sent to your local CLSC.
A nurse from your CLSC will contact you and may schedule a visit to your home or to the CLSC.
Postnatal follow-ups are there to:
- Provide breastfeeding support
- Assess the mother and the child’s health
- Provide advice and guidance on care for the mother and newborn in terms of health, safety, etc.
- Address your concerns and questions as a parent
If you require postnatal follow-ups for issues such as breastfeeding, jaundice or weight loss, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with a nurse.
