I came across this article tonight and I thought it had very good content for first time parents. I didn't read it word for word and don't intend this to be a debate, but it is 10 things to think about that with happen/be offered from the time immediately after birth to discharge from the hospital.
I don't know anything about who wrote this, but you can use this as a guide for your own research/decisions.
I read about the eye drops last pregnancy, and took it up with the nurses before I delivered. I didn't want them if I had no STD's, but they told me that it wasn't just for that. We ended up getting them. I'm going to ask again because I'd like to not be blurry to her.
I will have somewhat of a birthplan typed up and bring it with me. But our hospital pretty much does what i want anyway.
Baby is put on mom after birth as long is everything is okay, before doing the rub down and weight and all. When baby is bathed its all done in my room, baby never leaves my room without me actually except for the hearing tests.
And I make sure its known that baby does not get a binkie, that we are nursing, and I do not need help nor do we want supplements.
last time unless I needed something and called them the nurses didn't bother me except to push my belly and check bleeding.
