I went to the midwife yesterday and I am so excited because things seem like they are going to be different with this baby from the begining!!! First of all they are not going to take the baby away to the nursery. We get to have immediate skin to skin and cord delay!!! We also get to bathe the baby ourselves!! I know this may not seem like a big deal to some of you but my ds was with me for maybe 30 mins and then taken to the nursery for 4 hours after birth for the assesment and bath. If things go as they should, that will not happen again. So now I see why I chose the midwife (I posted long ago about who I should choose and most of you encouraged the midwife... thank you!!). Just wanted to share.
