Postnatal Care from a midwife

Sleepy baby

During the postnatal period, every woman is eligible for personal, professional care from a midwife. This is irrelevant of where, how, and when her baby was born.

I care and support families postnatally regardless of whether they return directly after the birth to the comfort of their own home, or they decide to spend the first nights in hospital (the length of the hospital stay is decided by the woman). I work within a flexible care plan. Therefore, I can provide both extensive care by uncomplicated deliveries as well as by deliveries resulting from a complicated pregnancy and when complications arise unexpectedly.

My services include breastfeeding support, examination of the newborn including weight, PKU test, examination of the mother, and substantial education on new parenting, bonding, and postnatal exercises.

If you are interested in this service and would like my support in the postnatal period, then please contact me as soon as possible (at the beginning of the pregnancy!). This will allow us time to meet during the mother child booklet appointment.

Breastfeeding und nutritional advice

baby breast feeding

Breastmilk is the natural nutrition for babies and is optimised to provide for their many developmental needs. Breastfeeding has many advantages not only for the baby but also for the mother. For example: breastfeeding results in a more rapid return of the woman’s body to its pre-pregnant state and assists greatly in the bond between mother and child.

A good start to breastfeeding is fundamental in developing a satisfying breastfeeding relationship.

Complementary to my midwifery qualifications I am also a breastfeeding and lactation consultant (IBCLC, internationally recognised). https://www.stillen.at.

I support and advise families throughout the entire breastfeeding period. My services include assistance with breastfeeding, bonding, problems with the initialisation of breastfeeding, mixed nutrition – breastfeeding and bottles, weight issues, introducing solids and the cessation of breastfeeding.

Childbirth and parenting classes

Those who are well prepared are more relaxed as they enter the birthing process and can be more actively involved. For most people, being well informed is the key. A wide variety of themes will be discussed in detail, along with practical exercises to try. These include: the end of the pregnancy; the birth – contractions, working through pain, positions during the delivery; support from the partner, new parenting, the postnatal period, bonding, and breastfeeding.

The ideal time to visit a course is between the 28th and 36th week of pregnancy. Of course participation before or after is also possible.

Two options are available:

Childbirth classes in a group

During the Covid 19 Lockdown I expanded my services to include online birthing classes. I have decided to continue offering this flexible option.

Antenatal midwifery appointment

Pregnancy advice, support, education and more ... on a one to one basis.

Together we discuss in detail your wishes, worries and questions. I can measure your vital signs and test your urine. There is also the possibility to check the position of the baby by palpation through the abdominal wall and to listen to its heartrate.

This appointment is not a substitute for child birthing classes!
