Today we have an appointment for a tour at the hospital we will be delivering at. I am very excited now since it is becoming all the more real! We are going to see a Labor and Delivery room, go over the hospital policies, see the NICU (which I'm praying will be the only time!), and I believe visit the OR.
It is going to be interesting to learn how they do things since EVERY hospital is so different. One thing I want to really know is if we have to have a C-section, where do the babies go after? I really want them to be with me so I can breast feed right away. I know some hospitals make the mother wait up to three hours in recovery before they bring the baby to the mother. As long as my babies don't need the NICU, I really hope that they can be in recovery with me.
I will be delivering in the OR for either a vaginal birth or a C-sec, so it is going to be interesting to see it. I also know it is mandatory that I get an epidural just in case an emergency occurs. But, either way, I am very happy we are delivering at this hospital, it is the best in the area. And the real bonus... ocean view rooms!
