+1W 4D 助産婦訪問 Midwife visit

Arata on 07/01/05



I had the 4th midwife home visit today. They have come around on the 4th, 6th, 10th and 13th days from Arata's birth. Midwives not only check our conditions but also answer to my questions to my concerns about baby. It's really helpful service for the first time mother like me.

Mother and baby are usually discharged on the 10th day under condition of baby's weight has return to the birth weight. Arata's weight was not enough on the 10th day and we had an extra visit today. He is weighed 3.4 kg, which is over his birth weight, but as his cord has been still attached, his discharge has been put off till Wednesday.
