Postnatal Information for Parents

When you and baby are ready for discharge from hospital we will update your community midwife and GP and inform them that you are going home.


Please make sure that we have your correct GP surgery, discharge address and phone number before you leave. Your community midwife will either visit you at home or arrange to see you at a postnatal clinic on the day after your discharge (7 days a week).

Please access the leaflets below for the information you will need in the first few weeks, and the links below if you need extra help.
