Meanwhile I should say hi! I've got elective CS booked for 4 weeks time, after traumatic emergency CS with DS.
Still negotiating skin to skin and recovery with OB, but so far (in large part due to this thread), I'm looking fwd to staying in control of my baby's birth!
[QUOTE=lambjam;6136683]To be fair to the hospital, my understanding is that the reason bub can't always be with you in recovery is because you need to have a midwife with you (this is the case at my hospital anyway). We all know how short-staffed hospitals can be, so it's really no surprise that they might not have a midwife to spare.
Yep,this is what i was told at the first hospital i booked into.And i respected their honesty upfront.
I actually chnged hospitals (another that my OB works at) that is going to let me have bubs with me after.I was told to call them two days prior to my C.section so they can re write it on my notes/? I think thats what they said.Maybe to just be organised and so they dont forget!
Two and a half weeks left for me......Im excited!!
Which hospital is this going to be in Daisy?? If i can do the same i will too
Just confirmed with OB today - will be allowed skin to skin immediately after baby born (which makes me very happy) but they are saying they have to put a nappy on bubs first. I presume this is a safety thing to ensure sterile operating environment, so I accept it. But it does still sound kind of weird.
Love to hear other people's skin to skin experiences. did your bub have a nappy?
Hi laurea ,im actaully in Melbourne.
I will be going to Jessie Mac,its inside Monash..Not sure if this helps you though!
I might have my second option as a c section incase my cervical stitch has issues and reading all these stories are nice but I have a fear of operations and being awake for them.
Knowing people are cutting me open and being awake for it would probably send me into pure panic. Is there any option to be knocked out for it and just have my DH to look after my child while I'm coming to? I'm not sure how my fear will cope.
