yeah that would make me uncomfortable too! Definitely switch! I loved having Rayne in my room the entire time after she was born, and can't imagine it any other way. *hugs* hope you find a place soon that better suits your needs
the hospital in AZ was awesome! after getting home the nurses sent ME a thank you card for letting them take care of me. talk about customer service. there they placed cohen on me right after he was born and while i was still in recovery but after being stitched up we started breastfeeding immediately.
last night my DH said that he could go with the baby, but i don't want to miss out on that. the hospital at stanford says that some or most rooms have the bathing sinks in there, but i'm my doctor won't deliver there. the video online was pretty old, so many things have changed. my cousin's SIL is a delivery nurse at this hospital and so i think i'll ask her to find out for me.

The hospital I go to keeps the baby in the mother's room the whole time, except when they go to weigh them (and my husband always goes with them for that). The room that I deliver in is the room I will stay in until I am discharged and the baby stays with me from the time he/she's born until we leave...except for the little time that they take them for testing.
My room is my room till I'm discharged and we have the choice of having baby with us all the time...
It actually never really bothered me, having the baby go to the nursery for the first bath and stuff. Usually there was about an hour or two to spend with the baby in the delivery room after the birth before moving to the postpartum floor, which is when they took the baby to the nursery. By that time, the birth "high" is gone, and then I start to crash and exhaustion sets in, so I've always taken the time to have a quick nap. My DH went with the baby when it was our own kids, and my former IP's went with their baby last time, so it wasn't like the baby was alone.
