I just had a baby and I didn’t go back to the doctor. should I go? I feel fine.

It’s great that you feel fine, but it’s a good idea for both a woman and her baby to get checkups shortly after childbirth. This is called postpartum care, and it’s very important. It helps make sure you’re healing normally from the birth and also checks on the health and progress of your new child.

Contact your local Planned Parenthood health center to schedule an appointment.
