I was so out of it by the time I got to the hospital (transfer from an attempted home birth) that I didn't have a written birth plan nor do I recall telling anyone at the hospital I wanted to BF. No matter, I guess they were just really supportive of BF because minutes after I was stitched up they wheeled me into recovery and I was nursing right away. I don't know how long it was before I got to hold her, but it didn't seem long at all. They held off on bathing and even weighing her and just gave her to me right away. It was awesome. My c-section had no impact on our nursing relationship at all; we went for two years and I never had any issue with supply or anything. Just make sure you're clear about your wishes with everyone and it probably won't be a problem.
