same here

We transfered from birth center. I pushed him past 7cm while mw "stretched my cervix open"(totally dont recommend). He was in for 4 days. It called transient tachypnea very common. I agree it is VERY hard to see your lo in the NICU and not able to be home recovering . Hang in there mama. I was able to nurse and hold him none stop after the first day. I was able to hold him a lot the first day but all feeds were tube.
