Postpartum Services - Support for New Moms

After the birth of your baby, it is normal to experience emotions such as joy, excitement and anxiety.

You will also notice a range of physical or emotional changes that can include:

  • Sore breasts
  • Breast infections
  • Mood changes, “baby blues” and postpartum depression
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Vaginal soreness and dryness

At PinnacleHealth, we understand that it can be difficult to manage the emotional and physical changes after birth in addition to the challenges of parenthood. That’s why we offer a range of postpartum programs to support you—so you can take the best care of your new baby.

Postpartum care begins immediately after the birth of your baby and continues through your postpartum follow-up examination, which usually occurs 6 weeks after you give birth.

Taking Care of Yourself

The compassionate specialists at PinnacleHealth will help you understand the importance of taking the best possible care of yourself after giving birth. Our providers are available to answer your questions and provide the information you need to stay physically and emotionally healthy.

New Mom Support Groups

Talking with other mothers who are having similar experiences can help you cope with the challenges of being a parent—you may even pick up some great parenting ideas or recommendations. We offer a number of support groups that meet at convenient East and West Shore locations to help you connect with other mothers and get the support and advice you need.

Postpartum Depression

Postpartum depression is very real and affects many new mothers. If you are experiencing symptoms of postpartum depression, the experts at PinnacleHealth are ready and able to help you feel like yourself again.
