At Home Reassurance with the Most Up-to-date Advice
Similar to the birth process in Singapore, the care given in the postnatal period is very different to what you would get in the UK. In the UK a health visitor will visit you, at home on around day 10 after childbirth, until then you will be followed up by your midwife. This postpartum period is a time of transition for women and their families, who are adjusting on physical, psychological, and social levels (Shaw 2006). Not enough help can lead to stress and sleep deprivation, making breastfeeding difficult, and negatively impacting physical and mental well-being of the new parents. A weak support system can lead to isolation and can contribute to postpartum stress; which is emphasised living as an expat in a country where we don’t have our families close by. Postpartum depression (PPD) is a relatively common problem, affecting between 10% and 15% of women after delivery. Home visits from a health professional has been proven in some countries to reduces instances of postnatal depression, lowering anxiety for families. It has also been proven to reduce parents utilising healthcare facilities and increasing breastfeeding rates.
Finding the right support can be tricky, especially as the help isn’t just for you, it’s for you, baby and your family. Infant Support Nurses are experienced in helping families navigate the transitions that happen after birth. Care focuses primarily on supporting the mother so that she can heal from birth and nurture her newborn, as well as supporting the father so that he can in turn support his family. Postpartum is a huge transition for the mother and her family. Having guidance and support helps everyone to feel calmer and happier. Studies have shown that support can make a tremendous difference by increasing support for and by providing practical childcare education to new mothers.
