Re: Skin to skin after c section

I think it really depends on the size of the hospital and their policy. I was not able to see my baby while in recovery, as it our hospital has a multi-bed recovery to cover the 3 er rooms. Baby goes to Daddy (or designated caregiver) until you are in your hospital room. For me, I think that was about an hour and a half. After that, babies room in with you, and contact and breastfeeding is strongly supported. At a different hospital, it could be totally different though!

Re: Skin to skin after c section

I didn't get to do skin-to-skin with mine until a couple of days after he was born (NICU). I still think it helped us connect and helped our breastfeeding relationship. He wiggled his way to my breast and tried to latch, but NICU wouldn't let him nurse until later.

Re: Skin to skin after c section

once my boys were all checked out, dh did skin to skin with them until I was in recovery and able to hold them. He was able to at least help regulate their body temperature and give a comfy smell and heartbeat until it was time to breastfeed.

Re: Skin to skin after c section

We did skin to skin on the operating table with my 2nd child It was so amazing and she started nursing right away. With my first he was taken away really quick, no skin to skin, and i had the hardest time nursing and getting him to latch. I think skin to skin helps sooo much and is the most amazing bonding experience.
