What is Cradle Care?
The postpartum period begins after the delivery of the baby and ends when the mother’s body has nearly returned to its pre-pregnant state in approximately 8 weeks.
The postpartum period involves the mother progressing through many changes, both emotionally and physically, while learning how to deal with all the changes and adjustments required with becoming a new mother. Women need to take proper rest, adequate nutrition and take care of themselves as they recover from labour and birth. Especially if this is their first baby, parents–in particular the mother–can become overwhelmed by exhaustion. First time parents may have difficulties in managing the little one, from holding the baby to feeding to even changing diapers.
iris-cradlecare is a post-natal care program carefully designed to take the workload and the worries away from new parents. This program helps with the best care for the little new born baby and the mother.
How does iris Cradle Care help you?
iris team of Newborn Care nurses are experienced, educated, trained and highly skilled in all areas of infant care and parental education.
iris-cradlecare is a service extended during the post-delivery stage before starting the baby’s regular eat, sleep and wake schedule. Our nurses and attendants work with families at home for a couple of weeks or months, depending on the family’s preferences; assisting the parents to be familiar with numerous tasks in taking care of their newborn and guide them in dealing with challenges with their baby.
At iris, we realise that entrusting the care of your child to an outsider can be daunting. You can relax, however, in the knowledge that iris nurses and attendants, without exception, have extensive experience in caring for newborns.
We also perform exhaustive background checks and carefully evaluate new candidates’ personality, temperament, and suitability for working with new borns.
Having a baby and taking care of one especially the first few months was not an easy task, I was told repeatedly, more so as I had no family support nearby. But thanks to Iris Cradlecare, I did not find this challenging at all. The way I was literally taught to take care of my baby has been amazing, from feeding to holding to changing clothes to cleaning. It has been an amazing experience. I could manage to get my beauty sleep as well with the helper always there to take care of her. It has been an amazing experience with Iris cradlecare team, with the gynaecologist and paediatrician appointments also being fixed by them, making it even more easy for me.
