So when I had my daughter the Doc and nurse told me that I would recieve an appointment in the mail to have my postpartum checkup at 4 wks. I even recieved a peice of paper saying the same. Well I am now past 4 wks postpartum and I haven't recieved anything from my OB's office. So should I call or should I give it the typical 6 wks and just see if they send me something by then?

I have no idea why they said they were gonna schedule me for a 4 wk postpartum apt as opposed to a 6 wk but that is what I was told!

So Call or not to call that is the question :)

      I am a 24 yr old Mommy to two boys Xavier O'Neal Age5 Malachi O'Mari Age1 and one girl Laylah-Marie Elizabeth! I have been married to my wonderful Husband, Quentin, for 6 yrs and our children are our life! I am truely blessed!

maybe they meant notify you in 4 weeks? When i had DS they said I would have a 2 week check up and at the appt I would schedule my 6 week pp. Never had the 2 week check up and had to call them for the 6 week.

that doesn't make any sence that they was gonna set up an appointment at 4 weeks. I didn't have my post partum check up until my daughter was 6 weeks old and she is now almost 7 months old.

I think you should call...     

 


One of the bigger criticisms with (American) maternity care is poorer postpartum care--   We don't do well and Mothers and Babies suffer.

But you can be on the ball, get yourself in anyhow.   ;-)

Good luck!

HUGS!!
