  1. baby to the nursery please

    Nope I don't call that lazy at all. That is normal. We can't blanket it all and say any mom who sends her baby to the nursery is lazy, its a specific type of person I think of, the ones who don't want to particpate in care at all, i.e. feeding, cha...
  2. baby to the nursery please

    We must work in the same place LOL! Just kidding but it sounds so familiar!
  3. baby to the nursery please

    Ditto, we do this too - ood is very important b/c like you said, in the begining babies may go a long time without waking to eat and we need to make sure its being done. I've had moms really not want to have baby to nursery but they were so to the p...
  4. baby to the nursery please

    Yes. I'd say probably half send their babies to the nursery on any given night. It is rare to have less than 5-10 babies overnight. Generally our charge nurse cares for them or we take turns. Also our admitting nursery nurse will if she is not ge...
  5. Back to work after a loss of pregnancy...

    I also have no magic words and I know each loss is different and the experience is different. When we had our loss I was not in the field so it was different. I could not bear to be around pregnant people for a long time, even family and friends. ...
  6. Breastfeeding support by HCPs

    PS and I do not give formula unless mom asks me to. I have gone in a room in the middle of the night to make sure its what they wanted if they sent the baby to the nursery for the night but have been otherwise breastfeeding. I will ask if its an ou...
  7. Breastfeeding support by HCPs

    We support it at our facility BUT often are over worked and understaffed and do not have the time we would like to devote to it. BUT when someone asks me to help latch a baby I do it, even if it takes time that I don't have at that moment I do it b/...
  8. Newborn evacuation plans

    Do you guys have an evacuation plan in place for newborns and what is it? I am working on updating (hopefully) or at least clarifying our policy/plan and was looking to see what other options are out there. Thanks in advance!
  9. Animosity between L/D & Postpartum

    We have the same issues and for the same reasons. It sucks for both sides that sometimes the other side doesn't get what the other needs, but yes we have the same problems and same underlying causes.
  10. big babies...

    I should add that I am a type I diabetic since age 12. My diabetes was in great shape during pregnancy, HA1C was 5.9 (best it had ever been) the entire pregnancy but as I got further along my pump infusion had to be increased quite a bit, the doctor...
  11. big babies...

    My son was 11.4 lol, I had a c-section. We expected him to be bigger anyway but not that big. LOL! He is now a 4 year old that is 44 inches tall and 80 lbs. My hubby is a big guy tho, so we figure he gets some of it from him lol. I've had a pat...
  12. Could I like OB even if I'm an "all natural" kind of girl?

    100% all the way agree with this!
  13. pre-delivery "grooming" issue?

    Yeah I was thinking about that too. I really have no problem with those who want to be bald and can see that men would appreciate it and like it or even prefer it. The only thing I have issue with is a man telling a woman she must do it. LOL, I ju...
  14. pre-delivery "grooming" issue?

    LOL yeah! I asked my hubby about it once, lmao and he was not for it LOL, but hey I'd support him even if he wanted to color it rainbow colors lmao! But I'd still have to laugh a smidgen! :):)
  15. pre-delivery "grooming" issue?

    LOl I love this thread, cuz I've seen all kinds of things at work LOL. I must say, my husband cares not either way - hair or no hair. There is no "reward" he does what he does b/c he loves me :) He also fixes things and eats a lot of steak lmao! ...
