First skin to skin

Planned caesarean section

Certain medical situations may lead the hospital team to offer you a planned caesarean section for the birth of your baby(s) if this is the safest way of birth for you or your baby. We can discuss the support I can give you during the caesarean section.
Currently, at Rosie Hospital, only one birth partner is allowed in theatre and two birthing partners for the first two hours in the recovery bay.

I can offer you my support as a birthing partner in theatre (reassuring you, defending your wishes, ensuring that everything is explained to you, etc.) and/or in the recovery bay (setting up skin-to-skin safely, support for the first latch or first bottle, for changing nappies, to help you mobilise and dress your baby).
