For those of you . . . .

who gave birth in a hospital, did you have to walk out or did they put you in a wheelchair? Today, we picked up FIL from the hospital (anxiety attack, confused for heart attack) and they wanted to put him in a wheelchair. I gave birth via c-section and I had to walk out. I couldn't believe it!! He was absolutely fine and I could barely walk!!!!!!!! I just don't get it!!

  • I HAD MY SON NATURAL AND COULD WAKE PERFECTLY FINE AND THEY MADE ME GET IN THE WHEELCHAIR..NO AND IFS OR BUTS ABOUT IT ...LOL AND MY MOM HAD ALERGIC REACTION AND SHE COULD WALK PERFECTLY OUT AND THEY MADE HER GET INTO A WHEELCHAIR UNTIL WE WERE OUT OF THE DOORS...I THINK A LOT OF HOSPITALS HAVE TO OBEY BY THOSE RULES..BUT YOU GETTING A CSECTION OUCH! YOU SHOULD HAVE HAD ONE!

  • I had to take a wheelchair out of one and could walk out of another one twice (all c-sections). Depends on hospital policy, I guess.

  • I had 3 natural childbirths, all wheeled in and out.. Even though I didn't need it... My parents were both wheeled in and out when they were sick. Must have been an off day, not sure...

  • They wheeled me out to our car. I was surprised because we was parked so far away. I think it's the hospital policy where I delivered you get wheeled out.
