I had to have my gall bladder out yesterday. My DD is 3.5 months. My surgeon assured me I could breastfeed her no problem, immediately after surgery. It was so wonderful to be able to tell the other 20 or so dr.'s and nurses who insisted that I COULD NOT that, "Well, Dr. so-and-so said it wasn't a problem." It ended each and every conversation about it. It was such a help in that stressful situation. (I even overheard my nurses in recovery talking about me as if I was some negligent mother.)
I just wanted to share this story...
He even congratulated me on my VBAC. He said his wife had seven VBACs. He was a great doctor.
