Arrangements After Childbirth **Edit to add another question**

Another post got me thinking... 

After you gave birth, were you stuck in the same room you delivered in, or were you moved into a family suite to recooperate for a day or two? 

The birthing center I had my ds in was amazing.  As soon as they were able to, they moved my baby, df, and me into a family suite, complete with a king sized bed and a whirlpool bath.  We ended up staying for an extra day for observation, so thank goodness they had moved us into the comfy room!


ETA:  Another question - were you allowed/encouraged to keep the baby in the room with you at all times?  

At my birthing center, I was encouraged to have my ds in the room with me as long as I wanted him to be there.  He was only taken to the nursery for routine checkups and the like.  It was great!

The hospital I delivered our first two children had rooms like that.  However, if you end up witha c-section you end up with a more medical type of environment.

they moved us to a family suite which was okay, but typical hospital-y; but then the hospital has since remodelled and the rooms are freaking amazing now.

Aw, man, that kind of sucks, but I can understand the necessity.

Lol, isn't that how it always works, though?  As soon as you leave they end up doing something to the facility to make it amazing!!

The birthing center where I had both children have a labor and delivery wing and then they moved you to the Mother/Baby suite.  The Mother/Baby wing had bigger rooms and more accommodations for dad to spend the night.

No, I had severe preeclampsia, so they had me stay in the nice big labor room for the 4 nights I was there. DD was in the NICU just down the hall.
