I had my baby on the 15th at SSH with Shelley from South Shore Midwifery. It was an amazing experience. My birth plan was respected and followed, the nurse I had was excellent, and they didn't even made me change into a johnnie. I gave birth on the birth stool in my tank top, and my little guy was scooped right into my arms.
To be honest, this was my last choice for hospitals, because of the c-section rate, but I am very glad that circumstance placed me there. My baby came a few weeks early and his lungs were not quite ready, so is still in the NICU. He will be home soon and is doing much better, but I brought this up because the nursing and lactation counseling staff, along with the entire NICU team have been very supportive of breastfeeding. I am pumping to keep up my supply until he is ready to nurse and everyone has been great with advice, support, setting me up with a quality pump, etc.
