    Hi Poppy, I don't remember whether I had a choice of roming with my baby or not. Sorry. What I remember is that if you are breastfeeding, you can request the nurse to bring the baby to you whenever the baby is hungry. So, I don't think it's gonna be a problem if you need to breastfeed on a regular basis, i.e. every 2 hours or so. The nurse will wake you up during the night. Of course, you need to tell the nurses what you want to do in advance. Hope it helps : >

    When I have given birth I am going try out a breast feeding program which will mean I'll need my baby with me for regular short feeds, do you think this is going to be a problem in Adventist?

    Thank you :)

    Thanks Batman

    Thanks Batman. It's good to know your husband is American and he was happy with the hospital and knew what it was going on! I would take your advice!

    Hi Anita,
    I gave birth at the Adventist and couldn't have asked for a better hospital or birth. I took my pre-natal class at the adventist as well, and in the class, they show you the delivery room and the whole process of checking in. I was so at ease once I toured the hospital and saw a glimpse of what was going to be reality in a few weeks time for me. Since I knew I was giving birth there, we had also filled out the registration form in advance in the pre-natal class, so now the hospital had all the informtaion on file. Everything worked out for a reason beacuse 2 days after I finished my pre-natal with Adventist, I delivered (4 weeks early) and all the forms were filled in advance. And, the head nurse that thaught the class, was my mid-wife in the delivery room. I coundlnt have asked for anymore comfort.
