Understanding Insurance

Generally, there is a global fee for obstetric care that includes office visits, labor and delivery, and your postpartum checkup. Not included in this global fee are labs, sonograms, fetal non-stress tests, and Rhogam injections. Your insurance will be billed for these fees. However, you may be responsible for a portion of them. Your balance will be due at the time of service. To determine the extent of your maternity coverage, you are encouraged to contact your insurance carrier directly.

Any changes to your insurance coverage, address, or contact information should be immediately reported to our office. Failure to provide insurance information may make you financially responsible for your medical care.

Family Medical Leave (FMLA) and Short-term Disability

Maternity and paternity leave may be available through your respective employers. Paperwork should be submitted well in advance of your due date in order to avoid any delays. Completion of forms may take 7 to 10 days, so please allow plenty of time.

Postpartum Instructions

  • Schedule your checkup one week after a C-section delivery, or three weeks after vaginal delivery. A second postpartum checkup should be scheduled at six weeks if you have had a C-section.
  • Postpone swimming, wearing tampons, or douching until after your six-week checkup.
  • Postpone driving yourself until two weeks after your delivery.
  • If you are breastfeeding, drink 10-12 glasses of water daily. Continue your prenatal vitamins, and eat a well-balanced diet. If you notice any indications of infection, such as flu-like symptoms or redness and breast tenderness, contact our office.
  • If not breast feeding, wear a supportive bra. You may also bind the breasts to alleviate any discomfort of natural milk production. Ice packs and Tylenol can also help with pain. If you notice any signs of infection, contact our office.
  • Vaginal bleeding should be expected for the first six to eight weeks after delivery. Anything from spotting to a menstrual-type flow is normal. The more active you are, the greater the flow may be. If you experience uncomfortable cramping, you may take ibuprofen. Be sure to get plenty of rest. If bleeding persists or becomes heavy, contact our office.
  • Do not lift any object heavier than your baby until after your postpartum checkup.
  • Postpone exercise until after your postpartum checkup. Walking, Kegels, and mild abdominal tightening (NOT sit-ups or crunches) may be performed before this visit.
  • You can climb stairs only a few times a day for the first 2 weeks. Extensive activity can impede episiotomy and incision healing.
  • Constipation is a common occurrence after delivery. To minimize this problem, drink plenty of fluids (64 oz. or more per day). Eat a fiber-rich diet with bran and leafy greens. You may also take a gentle stool softener or supplement such as Metamucil or Citrucel.
  • If hemorrhoids worsen after delivery, which they often do, contact our office for a prescription to minimize discomfort.
  • Do not be alarmed by mood swings or bouts of crying during the first few weeks after delivery. This is commonly due to sleep deprivation, a major life change, and hormonal shifts. If, after two weeks, you are not feeling better, contact us to discuss post-partum depression.
  • Postpone sexual intercourse until your postpartum checkup. At this visit, we will discuss your options for contraception.
  • Contact our office if you experience redness, tenderness, or swelling in the lower leg or a temperature higher than 101 degrees.
  • For the first four weeks after delivery, shower only, no soaking in the tub.
  • If you have had a Cesarean section, clean your incision gently with soap and water. Bandage only if directed by your physician. If your incision appears red or swollen, or has a discharge, call our office. Steristrips may be removed after 10 days.

Postpartum Depression

Mood changes are common during the first two weeks after delivery. To help you cope with this major life change, get plenty of rest, avoid stress as much as possible, and eat well. If you are not enjoying and bonding with your baby, are having trouble taking care of yourself and your newborn, or if you are feeling extremely sad, anxious, or depressed, you may require professional treatment for a short time. If your symptoms persist for more than two weeks, we encourage you to reach out to us. Our staff is known for compassionate care and outstanding resources for postpartum depression.
