This is my first home birth. While at an appointment for my youngest daughter today, I explained I was having a home birth and asked my pediatrician how soon after the birth she wanted to see the new baby. She said within 24 hrs. I thought she would say like 2-3 days or something (which would allow me to go). That means I will have to ship my 24 hr old baby off with my husband by himself.

What have others of you done in the past? Of course I want to make sure the baby is okay, but I don't want to be away from him for an appt and travel time that could take about 1.5-2 hrs!

Am I being weird? What should I do?
