|Hospital and community midwives have been specially trained to care for mothers and babies throughout pregnancy, labour and birth. Community midwives continue to care for you and your baby for between 10 and 28 days after the birth.|
Your health visitor takes over your care from the midwife. She is fully qualified nurse who has had extra training in caring for people in the community. Her role is to help families, especially those with young children, to keep healthy.
