Blood loss is part of the post-delivery period, especially when you get up or turn around in bed. You can also lose clots that can sometimes be as large as a fist. You have to call in case the blood loss is too severe. As in, in case it fills up more than one sanitary napkin in less than half an hour or if you keep losing clots one after the other.
The temperature of the child should be between 36,5 and 37,5. In case the temperature is lower than 36,5 you should try to warm up your child (hat, hot water bottle, extra blanket, on mom or dad’s chest under a blanket). In case the temperature hasn’t risen after one hour you should call us. A low temperature can indicate that your child is not feeling well. If the temperature is above 37,5 you should, for example, remove the hot water bottle or put on thinner clothes. If, after an hour, the temperature hasn’t decreased, you should call us.
