The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has recommended a paradigm shift in how postpartum care is instituted. They recommend that in addition to the normal 4-12 week postpartum visit, women receive contact with a provider within the first 3 weeks after giving birth. This RCT will randomize patients to routine care- 6-12 week postpartum visit alone- or enhanced care- routine care plus a phone call within the first 3 weeks postpartum. The patients will then be asked to complete a follow up survey at 6 months postpartum. The primary outcome measure would be rates of compliance with the 6-12 week postpartum visit. Secondary outcome measures will include breastfeeding rates, rates of postpartum depression, hospital readmission rates and met desire for contraception.
