After the maternity period

When the maternity period is over, you’re not alone. You can ask us questions up to six weeks after your child is born.

For medical matters, please consult your doctor or obstetrician. At the end of the maternity period, the maternity nurse will forward any pertinent information to the JGZ (Youth Healthcare Services), after first consulting with you and the obstetrician. When there are no specific issues to report, she will just fill in the final transfer information and leave the maternity record with you. You can take it to your first consultation at the infant health centre. You will automatically receive a request from them to make an appointment. If this hasn’t happened after two weeks, it’s best to contact them yourself.
