  • this website will help you find someone in your area.

    it doesn't cost anything to take home, bc it's yours. it came from you, so you get to take it home if you want. you need to let the hospital know when you come in, if not, it'll end up in the trash. that's like when a kid swallows change or a toy and they have to go in a get it surgically, they put it in a bag and send it home w/ the family.

    if i were you, i would have it in writing that you want to take it home, have your dr sign it, and then when you go to register at the hospital, have a pt advocate (or the charge nurse at L&D) sign it also. that way, if they do end up throwing it away "by accident" then you have a signature from someone at the hospital stating that they would keep up w/ it until you were ready to take it home.

    i have no experience w/ it yet, but plan on doing it w/ my birth.
