A CLSC nurse will contact parents after their child is born to plan their postnatal follow-up. A nurse will then visit your home within 24 to 72 hours of baby’s discharge from hospital.

What happens at a postnatal follow-up?

During the visit, the nurse:

  • Examines the newborn
  • Checks up on the mom's health
  • Answers any questions the parents may have
  • Gives both new parents advice and recommendations on breastfeeding, baby care and other topics

If you haven't been contacted by a nurse yet, contact the CLSC near your home for follow-up.
