5 Postpartum visits

Approximately 98% of women in the United States give birth within the hospital system. Women are discharged at 24 to 48 hours post birth, depending on the type of delivery they experienced. At the time of discharge, the focus completely shifts to infant care through pediatrics. The mother is left to recover both physically and emotionally while acclimating to life with a new baby on her own. 

While the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) released a statement in 2018 to redesign the postpartum "4th trimester," most women in America still only see their provider 1 time after giving birth. This visit typically takes place at 6 weeks postpartum. 

To offer contrast on how other maternity care systems in the world handle the postpartum recovery period for women and babies, take a look below:

United Kingdom:  4 visits (midwifery based)

Scotland: 3-4 visits (midwifery based)

Ireland: 3-5 visits (midwifery based)

Netherlands: Depending on particular circumstances, the hours a woman is entitled to a kraamzorg (Maternity Nurse) will vary. The minimum amount of time is 24 hours and the maximum is 80 hours. These are spread out over the first 8-10 days immediately following the birth.

Switzerland: For postpartum care at home during the first 56 days after birth, midwives may conduct up to 10 home visits for normal births and up to 16 home visits depending on whether the baby was born prematurely, by cesarean section or in certain other cases.
