    Baby taken away to nursery

    Hi Everyone, I'm new to this and to motherhood too so I'm trying to get as much info as possible.

    I have heard that in some hospitals, your baby is taken away from you after birth and put in a baby nursery for 5 days. Only you are permitted to visit the nursery for feeding. ie, the father isn't permitted to see the baby. Is this true? Has anyone experienced this?

    Which hospitals are you considering? This is not true for Adventist.

    This is true in Union Hospital, unless you are staying in a private room. However, once a day, fathers are allowed to visit their babies inside the nursery room.

    Hi baby G, yes this is true of private hospitals that cater to a mainly local/mainland client base AS they have found that most mothers wish to rest after birth so provide a service where they care for, bathe, feed the newborn. It is not true of hospitals catering to the expat clients as their research indicates their client base prefers rooming in with mum doing everything. No right or wrong, just choose the hospital which would cater best to your needs. Canossa, I'm not too sure about as I've only ever had one friend give birth there but I think from memory it's more hybrid from 2 extremes. Hope this helps.

    i think st. theresa's is like that, too.

    if you are thinking about matilda or canossa, you don't have to worry about that at all.

    No problem at Canossa, but you have to tell them to bring your baby back to your room. I naturally thought they would bring my baby to my room after birth, but after an hour, my husband asked where he was and they said he was at the nursery. We had to tell them that I wanted room in, and insist as they wanted me to get some rest... I find it easier to get some rest with the baby room in than at the nursery, as they would come every 2 hours to feed the baby, then for the temperature, then for the blood pressure, then for the food, then to tell you to get some rest.... !!
