At Inspira, we help you navigate the joys and challenges of early parenthood, prioritizing the health and well-being of both you and your baby.

What is Postpartum Care?

Postpartum care supports new parents and their babies in the weeks and months following childbirth. It involves a range of medical services and support aimed at promoting maternal recovery, newborn health, and the transition to parenthood.

Postpartum care includes routine check-ups for the birthing parent to monitor physical recovery, assess healing after childbirth, and address any postpartum complications such as perineal pain, wound care, or healing after C-section. Postpartum care also involves monitoring newborn health and development through regular pediatric appointments, assessing feeding and growth, and providing guidance on newborn care, including bathing, diapering, and safe sleep practices.

Your postpartum team at Inspira also offers support and education on postpartum mental health, including screening for postpartum depression and anxiety, counseling, and referrals to support groups or behavioral health professionals as needed.


How Postpartum Care Works

Postpartum care begins immediately after childbirth and continues in the weeks and months following delivery. Your first appointment, typically scheduled within a few weeks after childbirth, includes a thorough assessment of your physical and emotional well-being, reviewing your childbirth experience, and addressing concerns. Throughout this period, we offer guidance on recovery, managing discomfort, monitoring healing, newborn care, breastfeeding, and adjusting to parenthood. Through personalized care plans and compassionate support, we empower new parents to navigate the postpartum period with confidence and peace of mind.
