Post Natal & 6 Week Baby Check

You should book a postnatal & baby check with your GP around six weeks after your baby's birth.

Its aim is to make sure that you feel well and are recovering properly and to also carry out a follow-on check for baby in line with the Child Surveillance Guidelines. These appointments usually last around 30 minutes and are carried out outside of normal clinic times. To book an appointment please contact the surgery.

It is advised to register your baby with the surgery prior to the 6 week check and if you have any concerns you can book an appointment with your Doctor.
