I've never stayed in a public hospital so am not sure what to expect so I am hoping some of you will be able to answer my questions so I can mentally prepare myself for my upcoming stay. I'm getting very anxious at the thought of sharing a room with strangers & how I will deal with multiple crying babies.
I will be having a c-section do they normally room c-section patients together or is it mixed?
How many beds are there per room?
How did you cope with other babies in the same room?
Is it like a chain reaction, one baby cries and it sets off the others?
Do they restrict visitor numbers when there are others sharing the room? When my sister had my niece (in NZ) the woman next to her had her whole church come in at once and do a service that lasted several hours.
Is there a microwave somewhere on the ward for patient use? I'm thinking about taking my wheat bag for pain relief.
