    Default Baby-friendly caesarean at the SAN? (Sydney Adventist Hospital)

    Hi all,
    For a whole lot of complicated reasons that I won't discuss in this thread, it's looking like I'll be having a c-section with baby #2. I am keen to hear from anyone who has experienced the "baby-friendly" c-section at the SAN. Parents and baby are not separated during recovery and they help to establish breastfeeding etc. I had baby #1 elsewhere so any general info about maternity at the SAN would also be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    Wow, 55 views and only 1 reply!

    Thanks for sharing that Becclesm. I'm kind of sorted for an Ob but would still be keen to hear a recommendation via PM.

    Your positive comments about the care at the SAN are consistent with others I've heard. It's not close to home for me, but I'm thinking it might be worth the drive.

    I sincerely hope that your experience next week is a positive and healing one for you. Good luck! Whenever you manage to come back to Bubhub after the birth I'd be very interested to hear all about it.

    Thanks again.

    I did not have a c/s at the SAN but had a great experience and most of my mum's group who had c/s had a good experience. The baby friendly c/s was discussed and I think it is lovely but is not guaranteed due to staffing.

    Waitingfordaisy, so sorry to hear of your ordeal. Have PMd you.

    And thanks oconky for your feedback and congrats on the breastfeeding success. I fed DD1 until she was 3yo so I'm a big BF fan. Am hoping that #2 will be an equally positive experience.

    becclesm, you'll be in my thoughts next week...all the best!
