Post Natal Check and 8 Week Review

Your little one is now happily growing and rapidly discovering the world and your health visitor and GP will want to check your baby is healthy and his/her development is proceeding well. After the first 72 hours check, the next review your baby will be offered is between 6 and 8 weeks. This is referred to as the 6 to 8 week check, postnatal check or general review and is a medical once-over to make sure everything is fine with your baby and that you're recovering well after the birth. Do not worry though, most babies are absolutely fine!
