Oh that is interesting... My doula is also an RN, I'll ask her opinion on this. With Greyson I did tear but just a bit, 2 stitches here, 2 here, 1 here... And I have a feeling this baby is going to stay on the smaller side.

A lot of things I would have on my birth plan are standard at the hospital I will be delivering at. Its appearantly the only 'baby friendly' hospital in the state, so they say. Everyone you may interact with, down the the janitorial staff, have had some training regarding breastfeeding. Crazy, but awesome! So I know that is a priority for them as well. They also dont remove the baby from the delivery room unless there is an emergency. They do all the checks, clean him up, everything, right there in the same room. Then we move to a recovery room together. Im very happy with this hospital so far-they even offer aromatherapy! How cool is that?! Especially for a University, teaching hospital.

I am peace, full of unconditional love. I am confident and in tune with the Divine, receptive to guidance.
