Hospital: Advice from nurses

You will be lucky if you see your doctor for more than 15 minutes when at the hospital. It is the nurses that run the show. We can’t stress this enough: Be nice to your nurses! Acknowledge how hard they work even if you don’t feel like it. The nicer you are to them, the better your time at the hospital will be. Here are some words of advice our Mama’s received from their nurses:

““Don’t be afraid for your first post-partum poop.” Seriously, after all the trauma down there, it seems really traumatic. It’s not, but take the Colace anyway.” MAMA E

“If you aren't in pain, it isn't time yet. The more pain, blood and discomfort you are in the closer you are to the baby's arrival.” MAMA R

“ “Take your time recovering” – especially if you have a c-section. Take the medicine as they prescribe at first because you don’t want to get behind.” MAMA C
