See Your Doctors
Check-Up for Mom
Your doctor* should schedule a checkup within the first six weeks after you have your baby to make sure you’re recovering well from childbirth. This is called a postpartum checkup.
Early follow-up is recommended if you experienced certain medical problems during pregnancy or if you are at high risk of complications. It is important that every woman sees their doctor for these visits.
*Your healthcare provider may be a doctor, nurse practitioner (NP), midwife, or a physician’s assistant (PA).
