hmmm...I'll ask my friend who is a LDRPP nurse - I'm sure sees a lot of meconium (no pun intended!)

i agree it seems crazy to cut the oxygen source before the baby is stable..We have a mini NICU off all the rooms..does your hospital have that? Also, at our hospital if a baby is born via c-sectoin I think it's required they spend time in the NICU because they don't get the compression to clear out their lungs, so they usually have more breathing problems.
