Oh my word! I went to tour the L&D ward last night (I know, cutting it close), but seriously I want to live there. The delivery rooms are huge with a curtained-off area for family to be in the room, but not able to see everything. The hospital has the lowest c-section rate of all the hospitals in my area. They do skin-to-skin immediately. The baby never has to leave the room unless there is a complication, not even for bathing, medicine, anything! Then we go to one of the private rooms in the mother-baby ward. They encourage the baby to stay in the room with you at all times. All the rooms are private and large. They provide a complementary "celebration meal" complete with sparkling grape juice. There is a pull-out couch for hubby to sleep on, a fridge in the room, basically all the perks of being at home, but with nurses helping with everything. They have a professional photographer to take pictures of the newborn (really cute ones, btw. We saw samples!). Basically I am really excited about it. It helped calm my nerves being able to talk to the head nurse about everything. I go for my regular weekly check up today, so all my other questions my Dr will answer. This is really starting to sink in that it's all about to happen!
