Postnatal Care

Find out about postnatal care for you and your newborn baby in Dubai...

Mothers who have given birth in a government hospital and continue to receive government sector care often attend post-natal appointments at the same hospital.

Care for mother and baby is then provided by Primary Health Care Centres. These are located throughout Dubai and they are listed on the Dubai Health Authority website.

There are also privately run Well Baby Clinics, for infants up to 18 months. They can be provided at government or private sector facilities. Many of the privately run Mother and Baby Clinics such as those at the Dubai London Clinic or at the GMC, administer vaccinations. In the government sector vaccinations are administered at Primary Health Care Centres and are free for children from two months to five years old (the child must have a government health card).
