The postpartum period is a time of tremendous change, responsibility and healing. In our modern-day isolated, nuclear families, it goes unrecognised that the mother also needs attention and nurturing while her body transforms, her days and nights merge into a blur, her heart is bursting with a newfound love and her sense of who she is, shifts. On top of it all, she is learning the skills of mothering.
An integral part of the Professional Postpartum Care Provider (PPCP) training is postpartum physiology and pathology of both the mother and the newborn, enabling the PPCP to apply best practice while monitoring recovery by critical observation, risk assessment and referral. Further training educates the PPCP to give culturally appropriate, holistic, individualised support and care (no maHer the mode of birth) throughout those first precarious weeks, providing the best environment for the mother to focus on the important task of establishing breastfeeding, getting to know her baby and supporting her recovery.
