Since we know when the c/s is scheduled for, we figured we could ask family to wait to visit us at the hospital until a certain time. I imagine the c/s will take just under an hour, then we have our "miracle hour" (just the 3 of us) and at some point we'll be transferred from recovery to postpartum. So we figured we'd ask family to visit about 2.5-3 hours after the c/s is scheduled. We also thought we'd want to only see immediate family that first day.
My mom called wanting to know specifics and said she'd probably wait in the waiting room anyways. While we're trying to prevent family from sitting around for hours and being bored, I guess since I won't see her waiting around I won't feel bad about taking the time we decided we wanted to spend just the three of us. Is that insensitive still? Should we let family see us immediately following the c/s then wait in the waiting room during our "miracle hour?"
Part of me feels like I'm not going to want to see anyone for a few hours anyways. And at that point, only immediate family. An aunt and one of DH's friends have already said they're stopping by the evening of the c/s. Obviously we can be more direct and tell them not to, but I'm wondering if I'm overreacting and it'll be fine seeing people so soon after surgery.
What are your plans for visitors post c/s?
