Checkup after birth

Assessing your recovery

Your health care provider will ask you to make an appointment 6 weeks after your baby is born.

Be sure to make - and keep - this important appointment.

The purpose of this check-up is to make sure that you're recovering well - both physically and emotionally - from the birth of your baby.

Take this opportunity to discuss birth control and any other concerns you have. If possible, have someone care for your baby during your appointment so you won't be distracted.

Remember: it's important to take time for yourself and your own health needs.

Speak with a Peel Public Health Nurse
Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
