I'm glad you had the meeting, even if there were no good answers - though the fully scheduled appointments is a good result.

Good luck.


Wow, four hours. Surely you can't do some bargaining on that? Of course it's so hard to be assertive in that situation.

I'm sorry the doctor wasn't much help, but it seemed like he did what he could.

By the way LESS THAN A MONTH!!!


Hmm . . . I wonder what's up with the '4 hours' thing. Maybe there are special circumstances? It makes no sense to me -- my first (singleton) never left my sight, and my twins went to the nursery for maybe an hour . . .
The idea of making a mom wait four hours is really pissing me off.


Four hours seems unreasonable to me. Our major hospitals downtown are all crazy, but babies are only separated from moms if they have to go to a NICU, never for just a c-section.

Even a complicated c-section, the babies are just held by the Dads while Mom gets stitched up. Unless she's already nursing the baby.
