-the baby will go straight to your chest when delivered. they wipe them down and you bond for a few minutes until he goes to the warmer with dad. they do all the measurements and fun stuff them they bring him back to you to breastfeed. THEN you go to your room and dad goes with the nurse to give the first bath and foot prints. they don't give a bath until like hour 7 after their born.
-all suites are private!
-one nurse per room. so, me and Luke will have the same nurse so there is no confusion.
I love the fact that they put the baby on your chest first. Steve and I have been arguing about who is going to hold Hannah first. :-( I'm just going to tell my dr. ahead of time to make sure I do!
