The midwife that looks after you in the c section asked me before I went in. I told her yes. They weighed him and less that 2 mins later he was in my chest. He didn't last long there though as I was a bit woosy and so overwhelmed with emotion that I asked for DH to hold him. The greatest and the thing that sticks in my mind about the birth is DH standing by me holding our son with the most living adoring nurturing look in his eye.
