Re: Mom/baby separation after csection
I had gestational diabetes with D and his blood sugar tested very low. They still let him stay with me in the delivery room and for about half an hour after in recovery. They didn't take him away to give him formula to get his blood sugar up until I was being dealt with and couldn't give him any attention anyway. Then my husband went with him. As soon a I was in my room they brought him to me. And I couldn't feel my legs until the next day (I am extremely sensitive to medication). I did have issues with him, however they were mainly because of his tongue tie and then nipple confusion because his tongue wasn't clipped until almost a week old and it became exhausting to finger feed that long. But, he's 17 months old and still nursing.
