Your baby needs to have an appointment with the doctor or midwife within 48 hours or 2 days after your baby leaves the hospital. Your midwife may visit your baby at home.
Over the next month, the doctor or midwife will continue to check your baby to make sure he is healthy and gaining weight.
In the hospital, you can get help from your nurse, doctor or midwife, or a lactation consultant. When you go home, call your local Public Health Office for information about breastfeeding services in your community.
