As you prepare to deliver your new little one, we want to thank you for trusting us with your care. Our postpartum care teams are here to help you have the safest, most comfortable recovery and post delivery care experience possible. We offer inpatient postpartum care at our Edgewood, KY and Dearborn, IN hospitals and our outpatient location at Edgewood.
What to Expect After Birth
After your baby arrives, you’ll recover in one of our private suites and receive postpartum care while in the hospital until you are discharged (go home). Our compassionate team can address many common concerns new moms have – for themselves and their baby.
Plan to receive outpatient postpartum care after you leave the hospital. This takes place during the first six weeks after your baby is born. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that postpartum care be an ongoing process rather than just a single visit after your delivery.
During the postpartum phase, your body continues to heal and recover. Outpatient postpartum care is available to any new mom and most insurance companies cover the cost of this service.
St. Elizabeth Edgewood Outpatient Postpartum Care Center
Within the postpartum care at our Edgewood location in Kentucky, private suites are designed to encourage a positive mother-baby bonding experience. Postpartum care also supports a positive healing process after delivery and focuses on common concerns affecting mom and baby.
Depending on your preferences, you can choose to have your friends or family visit during your stay in your postpartum suite. With adult supervision, this also includes any of your newborn’s siblings.
There are many benefits to receiving postpartum care. We design our services and support to meet each new mom’s needs.
