I am having a cesarean (elective) delivery at a public Sydney hospital.
I'd love to do skin to skin right away, delayed cord clamping and I'm not curious about having a vaginal swab to wipe over baby's skin. has anyone asked for any of these before. My hospital said if I'm not bleeding they can leave me open for a bit while the cord is pulsating.
What sort of things can you ask for when having a cesarean?
