What if its a c-section

If you’ve had a c-section, your baby will be handed to a nurse or doctor as soon as she’s delivered and taken to a radiant warmer. h/She’ll be dried off, her mouth and nasal passages will be suctioned, an Apgar assessment will be done, and h/she’ll get any other attention she might need.

In many hospitals, if your baby is doing well, h/she’ll be swaddled in a warm blanket and brought to your partner, who’ll be sitting by your head. Your partner can hold him/her while you’re being stitched up, and you can admire and kiss your baby while you’re still in the operating room.

Afterward, your baby will go to the recovery room with you. If you plan to breastfeed, this is a good time to start.
