Did you get to hold your baby right after you delivered?

I did. With my third she came so fast they were looking her over for a while and I didn't really hear her crying and remember asking them if she was alright.

    nope :-( All 4 were CS so I didnt get to hold any of them. With my first baby they also gave me some sort of drug that made me completely forget the first few hours after. I dont remember the recovery room or holding him or nursing him for the first time. Its very sad to me :-(

        I was for the first few minutes. Then they took her to wash her and take her foot prints and all then, she never left my sight except to see the pediatrician before we got discharged.

          But when I had my sons yes, they never left my side except with their circumcisions. Then they stayed with me until we got discharged.
