After your delivery, you will stay in the delivery room for about two hours for close observation. The midwife will carry out the necessary checks to ensure that the uterus is well contracted and to prevent certain risks such as hemorrhaging. In the event of a tear in the perineum or episiotomy, the suture will be done directly after delivery.
During this time, your baby will remain with you for breastfeeding and initial bonding. You will then be transferred with your child to your postpartum room.
