My hospital is older and we have to switch rooms 2ish hours after delivery. The bigger fancier rooms are only for labor and delivery. So that's not necessarily a bad thing for your hospital. But, I would insist on them not taking the baby. Research has shown that if they take the baby so soon and bathe them, they have a much harder time regulating their temperature and could end up in the NICU. It is best to keep them skin to skin as long as possible and delaying the bath for at least 24 hours.
