Okay, the NYE baby spurned this on. I have always wondered this, so decided to finally ask.
Bear with me.
One thing that is kinda cute at my hospital though is that everytime a baby is born they play Brahm's Lullaby throughout the whole hospital over the PA system.
And Heather333 said:
We also play a lullaby over the PA system when a baby is born but only in the Women's Center
In fact, several of you commented that your hospital has this practice.
Question..........what about the moms who give birth to stillborns? Do you have some system of blocking that out of their room so they won't hear it? I dunno, but I'd think if I was in the hospital to have a dead baby, every time I heard that "lullabye" played I'd feel like it was a slap in the face. And Heather said only in the Women's center, so does that mean your IUFD's deliver outside the women's center?
I know this is kind of an odd question, but I've always wondered. I mean, it's not just live, healthy babies that are born on Labor and Delivery.
So how do y'all work it? FTR, my hospital doesn't do this, and I've never worked at an institution that does. When we have an IUFD mom, we try to keep her on the L&D unit (the walls are soundproofed) in a quiet room and let her go home the same day she delivers if she chooses and is healthy. When we wheel her out we take special care not to wheel her by the NBN.
