I've got my discharge appointment with my midwife next week and wondered what happens during this appointment? Baby is 3 1/2 weeks old.

Thanks!

Nothing really. She’ll check you’re ok, whether you have any questions/concerns etc. That’s it in my experience.

Nothing at all really. She just asks if you’re ok and passes you over to the HV team.

Theyll do a postnatal check of you and check baby too. In my area they also usually check you've registered baby's birth and with a GP, that you've heard from your health visitor, and that you're aware to use contraception/how to access it.
