What happens after the baby is born?

Once the baby is born, participants are eligible for home visits by a nurse, normal postpartum care is available and baby care will be reviewed. Mothers will also learn how to successfully breastfeed the baby. A return postpartum visit will be scheduled and referrals will be made for continuing care for baby and for personal gynecologic care.
