I am referring Ms Roy,who requires to be admitted for short term emergency accomodation and needs ongoing supportive services for postnatal care as she is being discharged today.
Ms Roy,a single women lived with boyfriend since August 2017. Her boyfriend started verbally abusing her,since there months and doesn't want to live with him. She had total six antenatal visits,and where her first visit was at 14 weeks. Folic acid, vitamin D and calcium supplements were commenced during antenatal period.
On 21 February 2018, Ms Roy presented to hospital for vaginal delivery where she gave birth to a female baby weighing 3.77 kg on Next day. Her postnatal period was successful with minimal blood loss and started to breastfeed the baby with hesitation. Baby's weight is increased to 3.95 at the time of discharge and prefers to change to bottle feeding. As she needs emotional support and counseling regarding parents and relationship with boyfriend for which referred to clinical psychologists.
Based on the above mentioned circumstances,it would be greatly appreciated, if you could advise Ms Roy,to apply for single mother benifits as well as need to be referred to temporary women's Refuge shelter. For postnatal monitoring and management needs to co-operate with local maternal health service.
