This service is invaluable if you have questions in the early days especially with a first born. This time round it was more like a social visit each day as I had no worries or concerns but it was nice to see them and they took my bloods instead of having to go to the clinic everyday to monitor my clotting levels.
Even if you go home quickly then have worries about something, nowadays there is not much that you can't find out on the internet, especially here at MDC
