I've had four C-sections, and I've never had a problem with rooming in. I did have rather long and detailed conservations with my doctors (both my OB and my pediatrician) before about what I wanted to have happen, and for the most part, I got what I wanted. My OB wouldn't agree to letting me nurse on the operating table. But he did get the nursing staff to bring me the baby in the recovery room.
My ped. was wonderful. I had no problems with immunizations, supplemental bottles, etc. The thing that I think is important is to make sure that What you want is in your hospital orders. The nursing staff will give you all kinds of heck about things that you want, but once the DOCTOR has spoken, they tend to be a lot quieter.

Hi Ladies... I am brand new here as you can tell. I had a c/b with my dd on 11/15/99 after 33+ hours of labor and 2 hours of pushing. The dr told me that my pelvic bone structure was just too small for my 8.5 lb baby. I am now pg again and due 07/11/04. Because my dr told me that a vaginal birth would not be possible unless I have a 5-6 lb baby, I am looking at a repeat c /b. To tell you the truth I would rather have a repeat c/b because I am scared of rupture if I tried to go VBAC. But I have to admit, I am SCARED TO DEATH to have to undergo another c section!! The last time I didnt have a chance to think about what was going on because I was tired and exhausted and just ready to have my baby out of me!! This time around however, I am having PLENTY of time to read up on c/b and of course I am one of those people who worry about the bad things, and just have this horrible feeling, that I am going to bleed/hemmorage or worse... I have read somewhere that repeat c/b are riskier because the dr's have to deal with scar tissue that is likely to bleed more.. is this true?? Also last time, I was given an epidural, but everything is just so foggy to me. I had my dd @ 12:47 pm, but I didnt get to see her until almost 6:00 pm, and I dont remember anything between those times, and I don't want to be like that again. I am assuming it was becasue I was so worn out between being in active labor and pushing for so long, and then the surgery just caused me to wipe out for that long? I am just really scared and since I am reading all of your c/b stories, I was hoping for some positive reinforcement!!! Thank you all so much
