When you go home, you can expect a visit from a community midwife, who will continue your care ensuring both you and your baby are well.
This will be arranged as you are discharged from hospital.
Our midwives have developed a postnatal information film designed to let you know what to expect in the first weeks of your baby's life.
There's such a lot to take in when you've had a baby, so as well as watching the film before they leave hospital, you can watch it again when you get home (or if they've had a home birth).
The film covers feeding, sleeping, mental health and other important safety messages:
