You can also get help from a midwife after a miscarriage. Regardless of whether it is a spontaneous abortion in early pregnancy or whether the pregnancy was already advanced. In this situation you often feel very alone and overwhelmed. This is where conversations can help. Sometimes decisions have to be made, e.g. whether you want to wait for nature to take its course or whether you want to do an excision in the operating theatre. Afterwards, mourning work has to be done and what has been experienced has to be worked through both physically and mentally. Possibly, reasons and causes should be discussed and feelings of guilt should be eliminated. It is important to give yourself enough time so that a subsequent pregnancy can begin unencumbered
can be and is not overshadowed by additional fears.
After the child is 12 weeks old, a further 8 appointments (personal contacts or advice via other means of communication) can be made use of in the event of breastfeeding or nutritional difficulties at the expense of the health insurance company up to and including the child’s 9th month of life. This can be due to changes in the breastfeeding situation or the desire to stop breastfeeding. All questions about the right time or the right course of action have their place here, as do all other concerns regarding the feeding of the infant. Of course, this also includes assistance with all questions and concerns regarding feeding with formula milk via the bottle.
Especially with the first pregnancy, the uncertainty is often great and there is usually a high need for advice, and not just when symptoms arise. But also in subsequent pregnancies, everything can be completely different from what the mother already knew, because every pregnancy is different. In all these cases, the midwife is a trustworthy contact person for all concerns and needs that arise. No matter what it is, simply get in touch if you have any questions, regardless of whether they are of a physical or mental/psychological nature. A wide variety of topics can be discussed and thus unfounded fears can be eliminated. Even with various pregnancy symptoms, it can be clarified what is more of a confirmation of the normal course of the pregnancy, i.e. completely “normal” or what needs further clarification from a specialist. Where you can already get relief and relief with good tips and advice or natural remedies or where another treatment is required. The health insurance covers up to 12 services during pregnancy via personal contact or another medium/means of communication.
After the birth, mother and child are looked after by the midwife in childbirth. Please make sure to contact the midwife in good time to clarify whether she has capacity for care at the desired time. Follow-up care can take place at the home of the woman who has recently given birth (visiting care) or in a practice. Even if only the child or only the mother has been discharged from the clinic, postpartum care can already begin.
Follow-up care includes all checks on mother and child up to the 12th week of the baby’s life. During aftercare, the physical and psychological condition of the mother is checked. Your vital signs, the progressive involution of the uterus and any injuries, bleeding, changes in the breasts and other complaints or conditions. The child is also inspected from head to toe, weighed, the excretions and the healing of the remains of the navel are checked, and any uncertainties and fears about the baby’s behavior or how to deal with the newborn can be discussed. Of course, the breastfeeding relationship between mother and child is also part of the follow-up care and, if necessary, comprehensive breastfeeding advice is given as part of the postpartum care. Up to the 10th day of life of the newborn, the health insurance covers 2 contacts or visits a day and from the 11th day to the 12th week of the baby’s life, a further 16 personal visits or contacts via other means of communication. If there is a further need (e.g. in the case of premature babies), the specialist doctor can prescribe additional visits.
Switching to solid food often raises many questions. When is the right time? What are the requirements? Porridge or Porridge Free? Homemade or ready-made jars? Additional liquid or just milk? What is there to consider in general when it comes to supplementary food? The 8 contacts on breastfeeding and nutritional problems paid for by the health insurance company can also be used for these consultations after the 12th week of life up to the 9th month of the child’s life.
