Quoting Squeaky McGee:" You can refuse the Hep B shot, but I'm almost positive the Vitamin K shot and the eye ointment are mandatory ... [snip!] ... (that's how it is where I work). You can also request that the baby room in with you, instead of sleeping in the nursery."
Quoting Jess♫:" I didn't get either w/ my 2nd child."
Quoting Busy Momma of 2:" I am having a hospital birth and I was curious as to wha procedures I could delay or deny both right ... [snip!] ... place that could tell me what had to be done for baby and what could wait. BF and bonding is really important to me. Thanks "Make a birth plan
Quoting Busy Momma of 2:" Thanks, that's why I'm trying to gather information on what I can do to make my birth plan. I definitely ... [snip!] ... want the eye ointment. What about as soon as baby is born? Like the weighing, measuring, etc.? I want to BF as soon as possible"
Quoting Squeaky McGee:" You can BF as soon as possible. They have to assess the baby first, and check the 1 and 5 minute APGAR ... [snip!] ... and 5 minute APGAR scores, but as soon as they're done with that, you can BF. They can take the baby back to the nursery later."
Quoting Busy Momma of 2:" My other two never went to the nursery till the evening (I don't remember how long I held each right after, thats why I want everything in my birth plan)"
Quoting Squeaky McGee:" Just try to stay open-minded. There's nothing wrong with making a birth plan, but everything might not ... [snip!] ... might not go just as planned. I wanted to BF right away, but they took my LO right to NICU. I never imagined that would happen."
