Your postnatal check up will be done 6 to 8 weeks after birth. The aim of this consultation is to check that your are fit and well. Your midwife will take time to answer your questions (about contraception, sexuality, etc.) and she will perform a clinical examination (blood pressure, breast examination, internal examination, smear test if necessary). It is also during this consultation that your midwife will evaluate the need of perineal re-education.
This consultation may be done by a midwife if you had a normal vaginal delivery. You may also choose to see your gynaecologist or your GP. In case of a caesarian section, or other complications during the birth, the consultation has to be done by the obstetrician of your maternity.
6 to 8 weeks after the birth. 100% funded by the National Health Insurance (Sécurité Sociale). No medical prescription needed.
