Is anyone else doing this?

I did mine this afternoon. Meet with an L&D nurse to go over all my history, my preferences for during and after birth, and fill out as much of the birth certificate paperwork and other misc. paperwork. That way when we check in - they will just grab our admission folder and it should be quick and easy to get registered. I have also done pre-registration with the hospital so ensure that they have all my insurance info and such.

I was really happy to be able to talk through the c-section process and how I would like things to be. Quick skin to skin and ability to breastfeed as soon as possible - even in the OR if baby is so inclined. The hospital I am delivering at has a brand new recovery mother/baby unit. It is bright and beautiful with lots of space.

I am so excited to meet our little girl

That's awesome that you get to experience the new recovery unit! I love when they feel less like a hospital.

Our birthing center actually called US a few days before 30 weeks and scheduled us as soon as we were willing to come in. It must be their regular process, because it was like clockwork. I kind of wish we would have set up a time to go back in and tour one more time before I go in since it has been over two months. Depending on what I hear at my appointment on Tuesday, we might just see if they can fit us in.

How far along are you again??

My Ob gave me paperwork to fill out at my last appointment to preregister with the hospital. Not sure what else I'll do beyond that, though. When I last delivered at this hospital with my oldest, I went to the prenatal classes, and I think did registration and all then.

I have a pre-admission appointment scheduled about a week and a half before my scheduled C-section. I think I'll just be filling out paperwork and signing stuff, which is probably a good idea because I think the surgery will be quite early in the morning and I won't want to do it then.

That's great they'll sit with you one-on-one to go through that stuff. I just did the hospital tour where they discussed most of those things but of course there were a bunch of other people there as well. I just ask my OB if I have any more questions about hospital practices and procedures.

As far as I know, this doesn't happen here. ...or at least I had nothing like that with DD. I was induced with her, so they went over a list of my desires (what I wanted during birth/after birth) and all that. Since healthcare is public, there's no insurance stuff to go through. I just give them my health card & insurance info (for room costs) when I check in to give birth.

All the birth cert stuff and all that is done afterwards.

It must be nice to get some of it done ahead of time though!

Seems to be similar with the birth centre here in this part of the country; we don't really do anything in advance. Each of our appointments with the midwife are 45 minutes long (except the first one that was 2 hours long) so we have lots of time to ask questions. We did get a tour of the three main rooms they use after one of our appointments (we would have had a tour during our information session but one of the rooms was in use!). I've only had to show my health card at the first appointment but that might be because they don't really need to verify my identity each time since each midwife takes on at most 4 new clients a month so they remember us! I did have to fill in a pre-admission form for the hospital in the event that I need to be transferred during labour but even when I handed that over to the midwife, she said they mainly use that information for the birth certificate.

A nurse calls the week before the c-section where I deliver. We don't meet in person, though.

That's awesome they do the one on one with you! I don't do any of that. My OB only delivers at one hospital and he said I don't even need to register all my information just gets switched over. They have already asked me about what I want during l&d during my appointments. I wish we could tour the hospital, I have only been once and was in a lot of pain and stayed in a triage room so didn't see much!

I don't have to pre register at all. (Which I thought was a little strange). This obgyn group does it all for me.
