Postpartum Health Record

For Mothers

Calculate your lifetime risk for heart disease and stroke (the leading cause of death in women) based on your pregnancy outcome. Download the Postpartum Health Record card [PDF] and discuss with your health care provider at your first post-partum visit.

The Postpartum Health Record is a tool to help you and your doctor monitor weight, blood pressure and activity level changes for one year following delivery and provides recommendations regarding blood work and screening tests that may be completed. It is designed to follow your baby’s immunization schedule; ideally you can check in with your doctor regarding your health at the same visit. Store the two records together for an easy reminder!

Our hope is that the information addressed in the Postpartum Health Record will encourage you, your family and your doctor to think about, discuss and work towards healthy lifestyle choices that reduce your risk of heart disease. We hope that you will use this tool to assist you in setting and achieving healthy lifestyle goals.
