I had complications during my c section, so I really didn't have the option of caring for the baby in my room right after the surgery. I was able to nurse her right after. She did beautifully. I was given morpheine during the section so it is all hard to remember, but they took her to the nursery because I was having low blood pressure. My husband and I both told them we were nursing and not to give her formula. I had to request several times for them to bring her to me from the nursery. One time I waited for about 30 minutes for them to bring her, and had to get my hubby to go and get her. After that she didn't want to nurse. I know they gave her a bottle. It took me weeks to get her to nurse again after that. The hospital I was in wasn't very supportive of breastfeeding. If I could do it all over again I would have kept her in my sights at all times and I would have gone to a different hospital. It's really sad that some people feel they can just decide what is best for your baby instead of letting you make those decisions.
