Postpartum Visit Schedules
The purpose of this document is to synthesize the evidence related to postpartum visit schedules in midwifery care. The focus is not to synthesize evidence related to provision of clinical care (i.e. content or health-care provision) during midwifery postpartum visits, as this was not identified as a research or clinical guidance priority by midwives or midwifery stakeholders. Practice tips provided in this document are not intended to dictate a course of action, but rather to inform midwives’ clinical decision-making.
This document provides a deeper dive for midwives and clients into the methods used to explore the evidence around postpartum visit schedules.
