After welcoming your little one into the world, making sure they’re properly cared for is incredibly important, but so is taking care of yourself. Choosing postpartum care at Alba Birth Center means entrusting your well-being and that of your baby to a team dedicated to providing the highest standard of care. Some common reasons moms work with us include:

  • Guidance on physical healing after birth

Work With Us

Physical Check-Ups

We provide primary care for you and your baby up to 6 weeks after birth. We typically see you both for check-ups 24 hours after birth, then at 1 week, 3 weeks, and 6 weeks. However, if you find that you need extra support, whether physical or emotional, we’ll gladly see you as often as you need at no extra cost. Our goal is to make sure you feel that you have a community and feel cared for during this transformative time. At each appointment we’ll monitor the development of your little one and your recovery after giving birth. Our midwives are also trained to address any physical discomfort or complications that may arise postpartum.

Emotional Support

The postpartum period can be emotionally challenging at times. Our empathetic midwives are here to listen to your concerns and validate your feelings. We want you to feel as loved and supported as possible through this time, so we’ll take any opportunity to remind you of your strength, grace, and resilience. If we start to notice symptoms of postpartum depression or anxiety, we have a network of trustworthy mental health providers we can refer you to.

Newborn Education

Whether you’re a first time mom or you have more little ones at home, every baby is different and you’ll likely have questions. Our midwives are experts on newborn care and can provide guidance on a number of topics such as nutrition, sleep, and general care.

Breastfeeding Consultations

Breastfeeding can be a great way to bond with your baby. If you find that breastfeeding isn’t going the way you planned, our team can help you navigate challenges like trouble latching, low milk supply, and discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is postpartum care?

Postpartum care is available for up to 6 weeks after birth to ensure that both mother and baby are healthy. Providers monitor the mother’s recovery and emotional state, along with the baby’s development.

Can I bring my partner to postpartum care appointments?

Yes! We encourage mothers to bring partners to their appointments so they can learn how to best support their recovery at home and how to care for your newborn.

What do I need for postpartum care?

To help you recover at home we recommend using pads, breathable underwear, ice packs, over-the-counter or natural pain relief, heating pads, and a belly band. It’s also important to eat a healthy diet, limit stress, and drink lots of water.

How much rest do you need postpartum?

We support the 5-5-5 rule for all of our mothers after giving birth! This means 5 days in bed, 5 days around the bed, and 5 days around the house. This method allows mothers to focus on resting and healing for the first 15 days postpartum, while giving them the space and time to bond with their little one and start breastfeeding.
