Rubislaw Place Medical Group

NHS Scotland

Babies require a 6 week health check and at the same time the mother is advised to have a postnatal health check. At this appointment any health issues following the birth can be examined and advice given on breast feeding, wound care and contraception. After a baby is born it can be a very difficult time for mothers and it is extremely important that any problems such as post-natal depression are dealt with as early as possible.
