We have our hospital tour next Monday and I wanted to make sure I wasn't forgetting anything. What do you plan to ask about during your tour?
-Wireless monitoring capabilities
-Hospital policy on: admittance (need to be X cm's?) eating/drinking during labor, delayed cord clamping, immediate skin to skin (ie delaying infant procedures to allow for bonding or have procedures done with infant in arms), child visitors.
-Cord blood donation options.
-Room in vs nursery options.
-What toiletries are provided during stay?
-Are outside food deliveries allowed?
-Is there an anesthesiologist on-site 24/7?
-Lactation consultant hours? How long does it usually take to get a consultation with one?
-Do infant exams take place in room, or taken to nursery?
-Is there a hospital policy on labor pace, ie. is there a time limit before c-section is required?
ETA: I suppose I should add when/where our doula will be allowed with us. Will she be allowed in during triage?
