Postpartum Care Visits

Blog-Postpartum-1250x300

When you’re pregnant, it’s important to get the medical care you need to keep both you and your baby healthy. That includes both the care you get before you give birth – prenatal care – and the care you get afterwards.

What is postpartum care?

“Postpartum care” refers to the medical care you and your baby get after they are born. These visits are usually with an OB-GYN, a kind of doctor who specializes in pregnancy and related issues. And they usually occur within six weeks of your baby being born.

Because pregnancy can pose unique health challenges, these postpartum visits are vital to keeping you and your baby healthy. If you are experiencing any concerns about your health after you deliver, you should not wait. Contact your doctor right away!

Rewards for getting postpartum care

To reward our members for going to their postpartum visits, we offer a $15 gift card if they see their OB-GYN within seven to 60 days of giving birth. It’s a good idea to schedule this visit before you leave the hospital after giving birth.

To receive the reward, members just need to see their OB-GYN, and give them our postpartum form to fill out. Then you or your doctor can return it to us.

You can get the form from your Medical Outreach Representative. Just call them at 1-800-727-7536 (TTY: 711).

What to expect when you see your OB-GYN

During postpartum appointments, your OB-GYN will check to see that your body is recovering normally from being pregnant. Along with checking any existing health conditions, your OB-GYN will also look for things like:

  • High blood pressure
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Postpartum depression
  • And any other complications

Your OB-GYN will also discuss future pregnancies, in case you’re planning for any. 

Even if you didn’t have any problems during your pregnancy, it is important to have postpartum visits with your OB-GYN to help prepare you for what comes next.
