Postpartum Services

Around the clock care for you and your newborn

The length of your stay at Bryan will be determined by the type of birth you have, along with other factors. During your stay, our mother-baby nursing staff are available around the clock to answer your questions and monitor the well-being of you and your baby.

You will schedule a follow-up appointment with your health care provider four to six weeks after birth (or sooner if you have a cesarean birth). We'll also share information with you on warning signs of potential problems and when to call your doctor right away.

New-Mom Supply List

You can soothe your post-birth aches and pains with the right supplies. Bryan Family Birthplace provides the essentials during your hospital stay, but be sure to have the following items on hand at home:

  • Sanitary napkins
  • Antiseptic pain relief spray (you'll receive a bottle during your stay)
  • Sitz bath kit
  • Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen
  • Any other medications recommended by your doctor

Five Ways to Restore Your Body

Here are some simple ways to take care of your body and have the energy you need to care for your baby:

  1. Sleep or rest whenever possible to improve your emotional and physical health
  2. Drink a lot of water and eat fruits and vegetables to prevent constipation
  3. Keep quick, healthy snacks on hand to maintain your energy
  4. Take walks outside with your baby to refresh yourself and get some light exercise
  5. If you're feeling down, or not like yourself, you may be experiencing post-pardum depression. It's okay, you're not alone. Talk to your nurse or take a free online screening to assess your feelings
  6. Don’t try to lose weight rapidly or engage in high-impact exercise for a few months (or before talking to your doctor)
