get to hold the babies right away? I will be having my 3rd section. with DD i did ot even get to see her for 5 hrs until i was back in my room and with DS as soon as i was done being stitched up they put him under my gown and I held him the entire time in recovery and it was so awsome and I felt like I really bonded with him, i am so worried I will not get to see/hold the right away
I delivered vaginally, but after Adalyn was born, she was put on my chest for a minute until they took her away to get cleaned up (still in the same room though). I didn't really hold her until after Alivia was born (28 mins later). Livi was also put on my chest immediately after birth and then taken away to get cleaned up. After both placentas were delivered and I got stitched up, I got to hold both. I was nursing both within 1 1/2 hours for Addi and 1 hour for Livi.
Thank you HeatherW for my beautiful, beautiful siggy!
No my girls were 28 weekers and I had an emergency c-section and I had to be completely under due to my low platelet count. I did see them about 3-4 hours after they were born. I did not get to hold McKenzie until she was 1 week old. It was a long time until I got to hold Madison due to her Diaphragmatic Hernia.
Nope. I had to do the recovery thing and all that and then they took me up to the NICU in my bed to see them. I got to hold Spencer, but Sam was under one of those oxygen bubble thingies. The next day the NICU sent down pictures for me to see and that is when I got to hold them for longer.
It was a little while before I got to hold them, but not too long. DH went with them to recovery while I got stitched up. Then they were getting their baths and under the warmers when I got wheeled in. When the nurses were done with them I got to nurse right away!
No, but to be honest I was so happy that everyone was okay that it didn't really bother me. They were preemie so they were observed in the nursery for an hour or two(can't remember exactly). Sebastian had a rough start(wasn't breathing at first), so they just wanted to be sure he didn't didn't need more help. He was fine after an hour and didn't need any help, so they were brought to my room and stayed there until they needed the billi lights.
I had a c-section. After about an hour in recovery I got to hold them both. Within a few minutes the nurse took Benjamin because she noticed he was having difficulty breathing. It was another day or two before I got to hold him again. Adam got to stay in the room with us.
Yes and No. After all my pieces were put back tohether I held Hurricane for a brief minute in the OR. Eclipse went to the NICU and I dont think I got to hold her until the next day. I was allowed to touch her but not pick her up. I feel like I missed out on a special bonding time with her.
I had a c-section. They were born at 37 weeks. My husband held them while they were stitching me up and they went to recovery with me. I even breastfed them in recovery. They never got taken away and I gave them their first baths after we came home.
My C was under general, so I didn't get to see them right away. I got to see Jasmine after I was moved out of recovery. Preston was in the NICU, and I got to see him the next day... about 12 hours later. It sucked, but they're both home now! =)

Nope I got to see Sophia for about 5 seconds when they held her up and Olivia has a few issues so they took her right away. I had an emergency C-section due to HELLP and had to have the booties on my legs after, I didn't meet my girls until the next night
