I am always prejudiced because I am a homebirther through and through, but the hospital is pretty darn amazing for a hospital. It is pretty much the only one here (out of dozens) that is. Almost everything I would ask for is already standard there, or at least common enough to not be a problem.

One of our ICAN ladies had to plan a cesarean because of a serious health problem. Before the scheduled date, her health deteriorated and they had to go sooner. They had to put her under general because of her health problem.

Under general, in an emergency c-section, and after the baby was out the nurse put her on mom and helped her to latch. While mom was unconscious, ON the table. So at least I can console myself with that - they are very serious about being mom and baby friendly - and they pride themselves on actually being evidence-based.
