Re: Baby due in 4 weeks, have questions
I am in VA also. If I may ask, what hospital will you be at? I had my repeat c-sec at Mary Washington 15 mths ago and found that lot of things are under the docs control. I had a doula and my dh with me. My dh was with ds #2 the whole time and the doula was with me the whole time. I was really nice having someone with me once they took my baby and stiched me up. We were probably separated about an hour maybe an hour and a half. Let all docs, nurses and any one else that walks by know what you want for your baby. Give copies of your birth plan to everyone before your c-sec date and talk with your doc about everything and ask about what the hospitals policies vs. 'highly suggested' things are.
