DS was born at 6pm after begining inducement that morning. It was long day for DH and he wasn't allowed to stay the night so he left at about 11pm. Then I was on my own in a little single uncomfortable bed, with lights either too bright or too dim. I spent the whole night breastfeeding, or trying to settle DS in the crib. I just wanted Dh there. I mean the midwives were helpful but they all do things differently so I just got confused and stressed. I think the perfect situation would be to give birth at home with a midwife of your choosing to stay for 24hrs post birth . So you have support but also all your own space you are comfortable with.
