Yes. My hospital did that. You should want to be with your brand new baby and not send it off with strangers anyways. Jesus!

Pretty standard at most hospitals now unless there is a medical reason not to have the baby in with mom.

Mine recommends in room stays but knows that sometimes for the mom to be the best she can, she needs sleep after labor and delivery.

They didn't require it, but it didn't matter because I wanted them in the room with me.

It was mandatory at the hospital where I had my son. They don't even have a "nursery". Baby is born and stays in room with mom until they are released unless the baby had to go to nicu.

I didn't have the option to send my baby to a nursery.

If I did a hospital birth I would request the baby stay in the room with me.
