On today’s episode, is all about the things that you need to know in the first 24 hours with your baby including Maternal General Maternal Wellbeing Assessments (labor-birth debrief, uterine involution, blood-loss, perineum, breasts, sutures, nutritional needs) and Breastfeeding (assessment, assistance, guidance, advice, colostrum, hand-expressing, Day-1 vs Day-2 newborns)
Note: The 25-min full-version of DAY-1 POSTPARTUM goes into a lot more detail, particularly around the whole Baby-Cares and Wellbeing Assessments, including feeding, weight-loss, respiration, output (urine & meconium), umbilicus cord-flare, crying, safety and most importantly: Avoiding the incredibly common neonatal hypothermia.
