The 6 Week Baby Check Up is sometimes also referred to as the 6 Week Mother and Baby Check, as the focus is on both the baby and their mother.
This is to check the general health of the newborn infant and to make sure the mother is recovering well post delivery.
At Hazelhill Family Practice our 6 Week Check (Baby and Mother) includes the following:
