    I have called mum n asked her to book a doc app for mon to check if she's any better.
    We have no other option but her.

    Is there anyone on here that has had a c-sect by them selfs??
    I suppose it's only an hour...

    I have not had a c sect but im due in a few weeks and I'd definately want my DH with me every step of the way. I would get my mum to look after my DS. By Tuesday the antibiotics should take effect. Good luck!

    Hugs

    I have no advice - sorry. Totally understand not wanting your DS or the new bub to get sick but after having c-sections, i just cant imagine doing it alone.

    By Tues your mum may feel well enough to go to a park. Maybe she could take DS to a playground. You pack picnic lunch, so the food is flu-free, DS is in the open air so less likely to get sick, and your DH could go pick him up once you're in recovery. Change his clothes, wash hands up to elbow (that's what NICU told us for infection control) and he goes to meet you and bub?

    This. Tbh, I'd risk it. No way could or would I be doing it alone.

    I would look into occasional childcare or a baby sitter, you know the date and time then you could have hubby there.

    I would risk DS getting sick. MissMuppet's park suggestion is a great idea. There is no way i would be going through labour, let alone a c section without DH or at least a reliable support person with me. If there is noone else to watch DS is there anyone else that could be there with you?
