Not bad: Usually an outpatient procedure. The surgeons will use the laproscope through several small puncture wounds. Recovery is fairly quick - within a week you are feeling pretty normal.

Be flexible: Have a plan and be ready to change it. Having a baby works just like other aspects of our lives. We prepare and make plans and then life happens, and we are forced to deal with whatever situation is in front of us. Communicate with your doctor what is important to you. Make a plan and then be flexible so you can enjoy the experience.

90 %: Most l&d suites offer competent, compassionate, and individualized care. Obviously, newer units may have better decor and comfort items. Often times, your perception of good care also depends on how your labor went, how good your support person/s were, did you get a good epidural (if you opted for one), did your neonate develop any complications, all these can be independent of l&d/staff.
