scheduled

- what anaesthesia did you have?
spinal

- how long did it take them to get the baby out?
I really can't remember, I had heaps of adhesions so it took them longer than normal to get her out - judging by the photos it took them 23 minutes to actually get her out

- how long after your baby was born did you get to hold them?
she was maybe 10 minutes old when I had my first hold?

- did you have skin to skin?
yes
