I want to add that we were able to have skin to skin/nursing within min. of me leaving the OR. The biggest hold up was that I was under general (failed the clotting test, so epi or spinal was not an option at that point). DH waited in recovery since it was general and he was holding B within 5 min. of his birth. B1 was nursing at less than 15 min. old. This is standard c-section procedures at my hospital, but if it is not with yours, talk to your Dr. about your wishes.

This go around, I will be on a lower dose of heparin and stop it further out from scheduled section, in hopes of getting the spinal, then I will be holding B2 as soon as he comes out.
