Thanks, I will check with them.   I have found a lot of places that will allow a mirror and to hold lo in recovery, but I am actually looking for holding lo in the or such as is described in the post above 'Invictus'.

Please note, too, that even if a particular doc says yes to those things, the person who truly runs to OR is the anesthesiologist. That being said, it is important to talk to one's doctor because they can have influence in the OR and can give input as to which hospitals that they have rights at are more supportive of such choices. I would also add that if a woman would like to have such options during a cesarean, it is wise to call the hospital well in advance and ask to speak with the head of anesthesia. Also, be prepared to calmly yet assertively talk to whoever ends up being your anesthesiologist during all the pre-op prep. This is where having a doula can be extremely helpful, too

My friend had a very good planned CS I believe at the hospital in Williamsburg, VA after the hospital near her described their policies.  I am not sure whether she was actually about to hold the baby; I seem to remember she got to nurse the baby immediately, but could be wrong...

Ok, I verified with her, she said at VCU med ctr in Richmond, with Dr. Isaacs.  My mistake.
