Re: Planned c-sec for 2nd child
Pretty much what the last poster said! My hospital doesn't do a recovery room, they take you back to the L&D ward for a few hours to be monitored there. DD2 came with us and I had her on the breast within an hour of being born. They moved me to a postpartum room a couple hours after giving birth, I was allowed to have a liquid lunch (soup and juice), and was up and out of bed walking by 7 that night (my csection was 8:30 a.m.). Good luck! I definitely recovered more quickly the second time around.
