Sorry, I keep forgetting this site has rules about what you can list on here. oops.
I worked at the hospital that I gave birth to Libby in.... recovery room and occassionally recovered c section patients. So I new the OB nurses and the OBs and Midwives pretty well. I was very comfortable with them. It's hard being in a new area... I never realized tha it would be so difficult to not know the staff... The stories I hear from moms in our playgroup suggest that 1/2 of them had sections and many of them had their babies taken straight to NICU right away. Libby's first apgar score was 3... but they stabalized her in my room and didn't take her out until I was able to hold her... and, even still, she was allowed to room in after that first night. I'm just more anxious this time around and in a new area.
Thanks for the info. There is a perinatologist here, so I'm sure I'd deliver here. I cannot get a referral to him unless by b/p starts climbing or I start showing other signs. Let's hope that doesn't happen.... but I would prefer to meet him just in case something happens last minute.
