So I recently switched to a new OB because I moved from nor cal to so cal. I wanted a baby friendly hospital but the closest one was an hour away and that didn't seem realistic because due to my GD I am considered high risk and go to the doctors 34 times a week. Well on my maternity tour I found out that they separate you from the baby an hour after birth for about 34 hours before being brought back. I am really uncomfortable with this. They also said they won't let the baby stay for longer than an hour after birth. I am now considering delivering at a different hospital that is baby friendly and does not separate the baby at all. I just wondering if anyone else has done this? I know I can because my hospital keeps asking what hospital I will deliver at. I just wanted to get someone's perspective on this since as a FTM I am unsure if this is unrealistic of me.
