5 reasons you need help with postpartum care
Postpartum care is crucial for the well-being of both the mother and the newborn and everyone’s postpartum needs are different. You may need a village to lean on during this phase and at Maika we provide you the village by sending our expert newborn care nurses and maternity care nurses. If you are a new mother never hesitate to ask for help. Here are five reasons why seeking help with postpartum care is essential:
Physical Recovery: The postpartum period involves significant physical changes and recovery for the mother. Whether it’s healing from a vaginal delivery or a cesarean section, having assistance of our nurses allows the mother to prioritize rest and proper self-care. Support with daily tasks such as bathing, changing, and feeding the baby can contribute to a smoother physical recovery. If you have had a c-section delivery our maternity nurse at home can help in redressing the wound using the Aseptic Non-touch technique to avoid the chances of infection. They can also observe the wound and look out for any symptoms of infection such as redness, swelling or foul odor. They can also assess if the wound is healing or not.
Infant Care Education: New parents can benefit from guidance from our baby care experts on newborn care, including support with breastfeeding techniques, diapering, and understanding baby cues. Having someone experienced in baby care can provide valuable insights and boost the parents’ confidence in handling the newborn. This support aids in creating a nurturing and secure environment for the baby.
Encouragement for Self-Care: Mothers often put their own needs last, prioritizing the baby’s well-being. Having support of our newborn care experts allows for encouragement in self-care activities such as getting adequate rest, maintaining a nutritious diet, and engaging in activities that bring joy. By taking care of themselves, mothers are better equipped to care for their newborns.
Our nurses will be your extra set of eyes & ears: Taking care of a baby especially if you are a working mom can be challenging and you might even feel guilty that you are not able to give your full attention to the baby. In such scenarios our nurses can be your extra set of eyes and ears who can provide appropriate support to you and the baby.
New Motherhood can be Taxing: Though typically the postpartum period is considered to be 12 weeks after giving birth but the whole first year of your baby’s life can pose different challenges. The challenges mainly include sleepless nights, feeding struggle etc. To make the first year after giving birth less taxing seek our mother & baby care services including baby care/ postpartum care.
