Good for you!
I decided to breastfeed long before getting pregnant.
Labor and delivery took 4 hrs. He was delivered to my chest. We had an hour to cuddle before they weighed him and a lactation consultant was there to help me get him latched on. He was a pro! He nursed every 2 hours the rest of the day and the next night.
The side-lying nursing position is a necessity, IMO!
My advice - prepare for the worst case scenario and you will be delighted.
