Postpartum Gynecological Care

We evaluate the mother's condition daily during her hospital stay, as well as discuss and counsel the mother and her family on self-care, breast or bottle feeding, infant care, and birth control.  Fletcher Allen’s Certified Nurse-Midwives see women in the office for their postpartum check-up at six weeks, which includes a physical examination and provision for family planning measures as desired.

After pregnancy and childbirth, your nurse-midwife can continue to provide care. This includes regular gynecological care with Pap smears, breast exams, family planning, and management of menopausal symptoms. Referrals are made to a gynecologist whenever indicated.
