YOUR NEWBORN AND YOU…TOGETHER…NOT SEPARATED BY A NURSERY

Did you know that if everything is okay with your newborn, he does not need, or have to, go to the nursery???

Women’s Hospital of Greensboro, NC is beginning to follow the model of bringing everything to mom and baby, right on the L&D floor. And I say congratulations to Women’s Hospital!!!

What does this mean for you and your baby???

This means that you are able to continue skin to skin.

This means that there is no rush to initiate breastfeeding but you can follow a much more natural, calmer path.

This means that there is all the time in the world to cuddle, bond, nuzzle.

This means that there is ample time for your hormones, and your baby’s, to rage through your bodies and do so many beautiful things for you both.

This means that you get to give your baby his first bath.

This means that you are there to comfort when all of these new, some unpleasant, things are being done to your baby.

This means that you have the advantage of learning valuable information from the nursery nurse.

This means that after 40 weeks, plus labor, no one is going to try to remove your baby from your loving arms.

This means that you can relax and allow your new love to flow to your new baby!

 

Of course, this is all predicated on your baby, and you, having no medical issues.
