the group healthcare question made me think of this.
our general hospital here has a new maternity wing and all of the rooms are single only, but it still isnt enough space to accomodate everyone. when i had my oldest there, before the wing was built, after i had her we were taken to a double room with another mom that just gave birth and her newborn. same scenario when i had my second daughter there. i had my third at a regional hospital, and had my own very spacious private room.
i understand not having enough space... but a newborn baby is susceptible to so many infections. you don't know who your "neighbor" is bringing in and out to come visit their baby, and vice versa. and the rooms are set up as such that you have to pass the other person before you can get to the person in the back part of the room. so if you're near the door, then your neighbors visitors intrude on you everytime they walk in. not to mention, your baby and their baby are probably not on the same schedule so you have to deal with their baby waking yours up in the middle of the night, and vice versa.
i was so thankful to have my own room the third time around!
