Why is Infant Services at home a good idea?
A new mother experiences many physiological & emotional changes, after child birth. This is the time when the body is recovering from child-birth and needs attention and expert care. Depending on your birth experience, you may start recovering early or it may involve more time than anticipated. Nevertheless, the process of recovery becomes seamless when you are cared for at home in the company of loved ones.
Post-natal care is important and our well-trained nurses will advise you at every step to ensure that you recover from child-birth, while your baby is cared for by experts in your own home environment. Simple yet effective bits and pieces of advice on your diet regime after pregnancy, essential medication, health and hygiene, skin care and weight management goes a long way in ensuring that you recover under proper observation.
Care24’s nurses are trained to oversee all your concerns and give you necessary advice so that you can be aware of impending issues well ahead of time.
