Post-natal Care

The VON nurse provides care at home for women and babies who leave hospital within 24 hours of delivery. In addition to looking after the immediate physical needs of the mother and child, the nurse offers support to both parents as they learn to care for their newborn. 

Why it Matters: 

It takes time to recover from labour and delivery, and to adjust to your new baby’s schedule. Our nurses can help you by providing advice on nutrition and care, and ensuring you and your baby get the care you need for a healthy start.
