My DD was born by emergency C-section after I failed to progress during labour. My Ob at the time said that for my next birth it would be a good idea to have an elective C-section.
My DH and I are thinking about TTC again for which I will need fertility treatment and I'm just wondering which hospitals in Brisbane (and which Obs at these hospitals) are best for C-sections. By this I mean where you can take baby into recovery with you and have skin to skin and attempt BF. Also where you can request baby not be bathed until you are out of recover etc.
My DD was born at Sunnybank and I was not able to take her into recovery. We got no skin to skin and she wasn't placed on my chest until almost 8 hours after her birth, as a result, despite trying my utmost, we were unable to establish BF. Also she was taken and bathed before I got out of recovery. If I decided to have an elective C next time (or if I ended up having an emergency C) I'd really like to avoid this happening again.
