Post-Delivery Care & Support

When it is time to bring baby home and mom begins recovery, UM Health-West is here to support you during this postpartum period.

During the first weeks after giving birth, your body begins to heal and adjust to not being pregnant. This postpartum recovery period is different for every woman.

Your doctor will want to see you for a checkup two to four weeks after delivery. This is a good time to discuss any concerns.

UM Health-West also provides a variety of support and education resources.

Additional resources are available in our online Health library, covering a wide range of topics related to childbirth and newborn and postpartum care.
