Let family and friends visit you in the hospital after your baby was born?

I'm 38 weeks pregnant and I just have this feeling my baby girl will be here any day so I'm trying to figure out the last bit of details before she gets here and hubby and I don't know when we should start allowing visitors after she's born. Advice?

I think that you should just wait and see how things are at  the time. I know that everyone will want to see you and the new baby, but it is up to you when they see you and baby.

I had most people in the waiting room and came in as soon as he was born. My daughter was both at 6 a.m. so they all came later on in the day.

Everyone came the same day and after a c section it was exhausting! With my next I am going to ask everyone to wait until the next day.

We only let our families in the day after she was born, and even then they all smoke so we didn't let them hold her or stay very long. I'd do whatever you're comfortable with.

When she was 5 hrs old my grandma visited at the hospital then Her godfather and sister came when she was 17 hours old, everyone else didnt get to see her until I was home. Unfortunitally no one even gave me one day to rest.

If I could do it all over again I would wait till we were home. I felt my SO and I never had time to ourselves. I had a c-section , then had a fever/infection so I was in the hospital for 5 days. We didn't mind our parents but friends and co workers no. I felt like crap, wasn't allowed to take a shower till Thursday night (went in Monday) so I looked like crap.

I vote to wait.
