I hope this isn't a dumb question, but one of my co-worker's brand new baby nephew was born last Monday, but he was in distress because the cord was wrapped around his neck.
He has been in the NICU since then because he is not breathing on his own, and he is not able to keep food down.
I was wondering if it's a common practice to NOT ALLOW the mother to spend the nite with the baby if he/she's in the NICU?? I was a little concerned when my co-worker stated that her sister in law had to leave the hospital.
Thank you from a 2nd yr nsg student......
