I have Kaiser & I will be delivering at Modesto Kaiser hospital.

I have been searcing their web pages for days trying to find out their newborn tests & procedures but I cannot find anything about it.

This is my first and I want to know EXACTLY what they plan on doing to my baby before I go into labor so I can decide what/when I would like and not like them to do.

For example I know I want to be able to try and breastfeeed before they take my baby from me.

Any help would be great, THANKS MOMMAS!

As far as tests, I know some are required in some states (being mandatory). Mostly to detect for disorders, that could potentially save your child later down the road. I'm sure as long as baby is ok right after birth, they'd let you nurse. I can't imagine why not. I had a c-section birth the first time around, and was so doped up and could barely concentrate on reality and they still made me nurse in recovery.

Have you registered at the hospital yet? If not you should be able to find all of that stuff out when you register and or when you do a hospital tour if you plan to do one.

My hospital tour isnt untill March 6th, Im due late April but I wanted to know now If by someway I could, That way I have plenty of time to think it over and decide what will be best for my baby.

My fiancee did not vaccinate his other two kids, I am pretty sure he will protest to vaccinating this one, but I was given all my vaccinations as a child so I have another opinion- that is one of those things we need time to compromise on.
