Hi, I'm 32 weeks pregnant with my second, although I had a wonderful natural birth first time (I'm hoping for the same this time) I'm trying to prepare for all possible scenarios and write a birth plan and wanted to know if anyone here was allowed to have skin to skin contact with bub straight after your Caesar and once you were moved to recovery? I remember discussing this with my OB last time (going public this time at a different hospital) and he mentioned that bub would not be allowed into recovery with me and would have to stay with DH. I've since heard a lot of other women say that was the case with their caesars as well. I'm not so sure why this is the case but want to be more informed about this and my options for my next hospital appointment when I bring this up.
I'm particularly interested in hearing from those who were allowed to have bub with them and how/why this was allowed.
