My csection was also a very relaxed jovial experience. I will definitely do it again.

Just thought I'd pop in and let you know about my c-section experience.
Last week I had an emergency c/section at 35 weeks, due to complications. My ob had done an u/s on bub which showed she was a good weight, and she had a strong heartbeat on trace, so there was confidence, but not certainty that she would be fine coming out early. I was already planning a repeat c-sect with my ob (for 39 weeks) so was able to request everything we had previously discussed to be put into place as much as possible.
As a result, I was able to watch my DD emerge into the world, as soon as they were certain she didn't have any respiratory problems she was placed on my chest skin to skin for the whole duration of me being stitched up, and she was brought into recovery with me and stayed with me from that point on.
it was amazing to be able to have such a beautiful, positive experience with an emergency preterm c-section. We were very very lucky DD was so healthy at 35 weeks, but I also feel so glad that I made the decision to proactively plan a positive c-section experience.
And it is a great lesson why you should bring up your c-section request with your care provider sooner rather than later!

I so WISH the doctors at my hospital would do this for me Lucy They won't..
You are super lucky.
How did you manage to get them to let you keep your baby with you in recovery?? did they have a midwife stay with you in recovery?
I would be super dooper happy if this was possible.

I wish i could go to RPA but it's like an hour from me so really impractical to go there for checkups during my pregnancy.. meh

Laurea - it's a combination of new improved RPA policy and having a private obstetrician advocating for you.
And yes, I did have a midwife with me the whole time.
