The Stay at the Maternity

How the maternity stay?

After childbirth, mothers and babies spend between five and seven days in the maternity ward.

The medical team controls the health of baby (especially her weight gain) and suites of childbirth for women (including healing after cesarean section).

The preparation of the bag

Before leaving for motherhood, every MOM carefully prepares her bag.

There will be the business of the baby and the MOM’s. The ideal is to have two different bags.

For the baby, it is important to provide a clothes size birth or 1 month.

The Stay at the Maternity 1


The 3 month size is too large for a baby of 3 500 kg.

It takes 7-8 bodysuits, pyjamas and other outfits, 7 pairs of socks, a nest of Angel or combination to get out and two sleepers size 0-3 months.

The spare is essential because the baby can have a spit-up and have to be changed two or three times a day.

Get to know baby

The maternity stay is when the mother is alone with the baby at night and learn to get to know.

It is observed, look at it, admire it, in short it is the most beautiful of all babies.

The MOM takes its bearings with baby. The stay at the maternity is a time ideal to leave aside the housework and other chores. If you have other children, it is difficult to stay “away” from them but the mother needs to rest and try to bond with her baby.

Some dads are spending nights at the hospital. Most sleep on camp beds and don’t spend the night’s sleep, but the happiness of being family surpasses fatigue with maternity shoes boots.

Learning about breastfeeding

The stay at the maternity is the opportunity to tame breastfeeding.

The Stay at the Maternity 2

Although it seems simple and natural, breastfeeding can be a path full of pitfalls between crevices, mounted milk painful and difficult to breastfeed baby.

The midwife and / or the nursery are there to support the MOM in her breastfeeding project and give him good advice on postures, the position of the baby, the interval between feedings. Do not hesitate to ask questions to the medical team.

If breastfeeding does not actually seem to point at the end of motherhood, don’t worry: the PMI and the La Leche League association are present to help moms and answer their questions.

A day at the clinic or hospital

A day in the maternity unit starts early. At seven o’clock, breakfast arrives with the baby (for those who have had a caesarean, they can often leave their baby in the nursery).

Many women keep their baby at night with them because they are very fusional. Then the MOM prepares and it’s time for the bath. Depending on the configuration of the maternity wards, the bath is in the room or the nursery. Moms are accompanied by nursery nurses and assistants, who provide advice, with methodology.

The day passes, rhythmic between visits, NAPs baby, breastfeeding or bottle, the passage of the nurses or nursery nurses. In short, there is no need to worry: you get bored not alone with her baby.

At night, the medical staff is present and reassures the Moms if incessant crying baby or baby blues.

Visits

Family, friends, neighbors, knowledge… everyone is aware that baby is born and you’re a happy happy MOM. Everyone wants to see the baby face.

Family visits are important for new parents, but for the more distant surroundings, wait for the return home. Motherhood, must be able to breathe a little. Visits at a frantic pace tired MOM and can disrupt the sleep of baby.

Back home, you will be happier and you can go to your friends or neighbors show your offspring. Avoid inviting too many people at home: you are tired. So, do not add the household, the preparation of tea or meals…, think about you and your baby.

2ND EXAMPLE OF A BIRTH PLAN: THE LETTER

The Location, Date,

Exmo. Mr. Director of the Emergency Service of Obstetrics (name)

I turn to you, given the approach of a great and happy event for me and for my family: the birth of our son. The delivery is scheduled for (date)

The father and I did the course Preparation for the Birth and we are also informed of the various WHO guidelines for the childbirth. For this reason, and after much thinking on the subject, we made some assumptions that I would like to be respected.

Knowing the good performance of the professionals of the Hospital (name), your technical ability and the effort and commitment to service excellence, and especially each time more humanized, I hereby ask the following:

  • Possibility of ambulation, regardless of the delivery room vacant for the effect.
  • Intravenous infusion only if there is an absolute need to administer some drug, or avoid dehydration.
  • Use of oxytocin, only with my agreement.
  • Situation and enema, only if necessary.
  • The possibility of being able to feed the baby in the 1st half an hour of life and always in contact skin-to-skin.

I’m sure that a birth under these conditions, it will be for me a childbirth as well humanized, that will promote my well-being physical and emotional, without neglecting the security that should surround the birth of my son, and mostly that will give a great opportunity for my son to be born happy.

Thank you since now for your unconditional support at all times.
