    Once you've had bub and are on the ward, make sure you remind the midwives that your first baby was 25 weeks so this is your first time caring/feeding baby by yourself from day 1. Can be easy for them to forget, especially if they're just told that it's your second baby.
    This is good advice given s/he will be your second baby.

    Thanks everyone, some great advice.
    @wannawannabe yes you're absolutely right caring from day one will be a whole new experience and I'll make sure I mention it to all the midwives.

    My private OB ran a C-section and epidural class for his patients. I found it really helpful for both DH and I as he showed video and had a guest speaker (a woman who'd recently had a section) and both answered questions as well. She even showed us her scar!

    I definitely think having some dedicated time for your practitioner/caregiver to spend time answering all your questions is worthwhile so you can be as prepared as possible. While my experience was positive it was still nerve wracking so helpful to have a bit of a heads up about the procedure itself and what everyone's role would be in the theatre.
