I lived there for three years and visited maternity wards to visit friends twice. My very limited experience was that yes, circ was on the checklist before discharge. I remember one of my friends having a screaming argument to take her child home before he was circ'd. (This was also the same hospital where she labored in a room with 10 other women while her DH was not allowed in, where the baby was not allowed to room in, and where they ignored her instructions not to give sugar water, formula and a pacifier.) I believe my other friend did have her son circ'd.
