Wow - I can't believe your hospital won't let your 20-month old visit! I always thought that our little rural hospital was overly old-school but at least my kids can visit me there. My first DS was an emergency c-section and I had to have a c-section for DS2 as well if I wanted to deliver within 4 hours of our house. DS2's c-section did not go so great (doc said my scarring from the first one was so bad it looked like I was on my third or forth). That is one of the reasons DH and I thought we were done...ha ha! I'm actually pretty scared about having a third c-section here, and I'm thinking about staying with my folks in a more urban/medically advanced area because well, I don't want to die. But then I'm worried about how my folks could care for DS2 while I'm in the hospital. I haven't seen my doc yet, I guess I'll talk to her about it in a couple weeks.

You know, now that we're talking about it, this seems wrong to me. They're our babies - why can they say what we can and can't do. Annoying.

Really, it's to protect the babies. Our children are more susceptible to the nasties of hospitals...and trust, hospitals are filled with bacteria and germs that could get our kids sick. it's a sad shame - my girl will be only 21 months when the new baby comes and she's never even been left with a baby sitter before. I can't imagine what it will be like for us when we have to go to the hospital to have this baby.

Because you can check yourself out against medical advise but not someone else

Re: 2014

I should watch myself. DH saw me getting ready to watch a birth video of a home water birth and he put the brakes on big time. So I will definitely be heading to the hospital when it's time, and I should figure out how to make the best of it instead of getting all worked up about the things I don't like... But still

Re: 2014

So why are no minors allowed in these hospitals? Our little hospital here is pretty conservative, but thankfully I was able to see DS1 after DS2 was cut out. I was in the hospital for days, I would have freaked out if I couldn't see DS1. Is this a new thing or have they always not allowed kids to visit their parents?

I was brushed off when I asked... Just told its hospital policy and that children could bring unintended germs ( good thing no one ever got sick from being in a hospital)
