When should I have my postnatal follow up assessment?

It is normal to experience some bleeding similar to a period for up to 6 weeks post-birth, we therefore suggest a follow up appointment for an assessment of your pelvic floor muscles at approximately 6-8 weeks post-partum (when your bleeding has ceased).  This enables the earliest commencement of your pelvic floor recovery whilst also minimising any chance of infection.  For your convenience, we can schedule this assessment alongside your postnatal appointment with your Alana Obstetrician.
