Professional postpartum care provided in the first postnatal weeks
is aimed at meeting the mother’s needs, in a flexible and personal manner. Together with the mother, the trained Professional Postpartum Care Provider (PPCP) will create a plan that examines the mother’s expectations and wishes with regards to the kind of care she would like and to discuss potential cultural differences in postpartum and newborn care.
The PPCP offers a broad range of professional skills to promote
and nurture healing and help with practical tasks to allow the new mother to rest, recover and care for her new baby. She offers evidenced-based information on emotional and physical recovery from childbirth, normal newborn development, infant feeding, infant soothing and coping skills for new parents. The PPCP assists with newborn care, family adjustment, and when agreed upon, meal preparation, and light household chores and is trained to provide appropriate referrals when necessary
