Healthy Mother, Healthy Baby Programme

Antenatal care is largely carried out by midwives and there is often little contact between a mother and her GP until the mother/whanau arrive for the baby’s six week vaccinations (or not).

It is usual practice for the midwife to discharge the mother at 4 - 6 weeks or after seven visits (which can be less than six weeks.).

Auckland PHO funds a comprehensive postnatal check of the new mother which includes screening for depression, family violence and checks on her physical wellbeing.

This programme encourages the re-establishment of the link between the family of the newborn baby and the GP team for the ongoing benefit of the mother and child. Early engagement of the family with the GP practice also ensures that immunisation of the baby occurs on time.
