Your post-natal care will be delivered by midwives within the Unit and at home. The midwives are there to offer support and to educate and advise you in caring for yourself and your baby.
Also, midwives will support you in your choice of infant feeding:
- evidence shows that breast feeding is best for baby and is therefore actively encouraged by the midwives at the CMU.
- midwives are available to offer support at the Unit, at home and at the breastfeeding workshop in the community.
- The Vale of Leven CMU is a Baby Friendly unit. This accreditation recognises the unit as a centre of excellence for the promotion and support of breastfeeding.
