11.5  After the antenatal check-up

A HEP doing an antenatal check-up

After you have finished checking the fetus and the mother, and following the instructions for any warning signs, find out if the woman has any more questions, or needs to talk about anything else. If she has any warning signs, carefully explain what the warning sign is, and what she must do to care for herself. If this is a return antenatal check-up, evaluate what you did for her at the previous check-up. Decide what else you may need to do for her. If she needs to be referred to a higher-level health facility, be sure she knows where and when to go.
