  • im almost positive you do it right away, right after you have the baby.

  • Honestly, I really think it depends on your doctor. My mom had her tubes tied right after my little sister was born, before she ever left the hospital. So, yes, most doctors will do it right away.

  • i think if you have a c-section they go ahead and do it then i had considered that myself

  • at same time of delivery. I was going to but gave birth at a Catholic hospital (I'm not Catholic) and they didn't do surgeries back then on Sunday so I had to wait until the following morning. That sucked.

  • My dr won't do it unless you have a c-section. So it depends on the dr.

  • i've heard conflicting stories on this as well. i've heard that you can get it done right after the baby's born (vaginal birth or c-section) but i've also heard that unless you have a c-section you have to wait until your 6 weeks (postpartum) is up. so i would ask your doctor.

  • you can do it right away. what they did at the hospital i was at for clinicals is instead of having your baby in the L&D room, you were in the OR of the L&D floor. you have your baby, you get to see him/her for a sec, tell you SO to leave the room (bc only one person is allowed back there) and then knock you out and tie your tubes.
