So I'm getting regular prenatal care with an OB/GYN, but I plan to have an "oops" UC.
Should I take the babies to the hospital after birth, or should I take them to a pediatrician?
I would like to avoid the hospital panic of bringing newborn twins in, but I'm assuming my hospital/OB will be wondering where I went if I don't show up to either give birth or with babies.
Plus, I'd want to recover at home, so I wouldn't want to bring them in right away after they were born. The hospital would be extremely skeptical if I did this. (They'd also be skeptical if I presented to them twins that have been clamped with cord clamps.)
If I take them to the pediatrician, what do I tell the hospital/OB?
What's the easiest way to get a birth certificate and any other necessary records? Maybe give me a list of everything I will have to get after they are born?
Please help me decide based on my situation...and tell me what you've done in the past and what the outcome was. Thanks so much!
(I'm glad I've been planning this for the entire pregnancy...there's so much to learn and think about!)
