Going home

At home with baby

Post-natal follow-up

You are offered a post-natal follow-up after the birth of your child.


A CLSC nurse will contact you within 48 to 72 hours after you have left the hospital to schedule a meeting at your home.

First visit

During the first visit, the nurse will assess your health status and that of your baby. She can also answer your questions and those of your spouse to facilitate your adaptation to your new role as parents.

The nurse will offer a follow-up that is adapted to both your needs and those of your baby by referring you to the appropriate sites for the following services:

  • breastfeeding support
  • advice on your child's development
  • advice on caring for and feeding your baby
  • referrals for a psychosocial intervention
  • referrals to community resources


You can receive help or assistance at any time by calling: Info-Santé 811
