They are being very strict with the ban from what I've heard. I was talking to a grandmother that hadn't even seen her grandchild yet. :-( I hope it is lifted before then. My mom was at both of my children's births (with my husband), and for my daughter, I asked my aunt to come as well. She still talks about how amazing it was 6 months later. Good luck!

I head that a pregrant mother who was very young got the flu and died on life support until baby can be born soon

its because of the flu (My friend told me)

A friend of ours just had a baby and they are only allowed one visitor(the dad) and it has to be the same visitor the whole time. Sadly  the rest of the family couldn't see them until they went home.

My son and his GF have asked that I be present at the birth of their baby also. The baby is due the end of March so, I have hopes the ban will be lifted. My son is very nervous and doesn't do well with hospitals let alone anything medical. He has had to step out of one ultrasound because he couldn't listen to the heart on the monitor (he was the same with the tape I had of T's heart u/s. He couldn't watch or even hear it lol). But, also, they have a midwife so, the rules are actually different from what my they have been told and they have been reassured that I will be able to be there since she has a midwife. Not sure why the rules are different though.

The ban could easily extend through April if the cases contine to be present. We've had a hellish winter and a lot of illness to contend with. A good early spring is realistically what we need to get everyone out in the fresh air and away from stuffy, dry indoor conditions. I hope it's lifted soon too. I could easily go in April and know how tough t woud e fr y s/o to go it alone...lol

That's odd because our friend had a midwife as well and none of their family was allowed to be there.

I've been wondering if she heard her midwife right. But, I will be sitting outside the hospital the whole time if necessary. My son is a baby himself and we all think he will not be able to handle the birth. She'll need some real support.

I think having the ban in place is a good thing. Babies are so fragile, and with flu season being extremely high this year its what is best for the babies. As for the midwife situation, if the baby is still being born at the hospital, then they hve to follow the rules of the hospital. Midwives don't make the rules, and they certainly don't change because a midwife s delivering and not an OB. Hopefully the ban is lifted and you will be able to be there.

We aren't strict on our floor, but I know peds and ob definitely enforce the rule- no exceptions.

I hope the ban is lifted by the time your grand baby makes an appearance!!

We just called and the ban is still in effect. It is one visitor per patient for labour & delivery, it has to be the same visitor the whole time there are no switch offs :(

The only extra person allowed to be in the room is a doula.  But that being said we have to show proof of flu shot and certification and wear a mask.  Even nurses who don't have flu shot have to gown up and wear a mask.

 

Just cause she is delivering with a midwife they cant change the rules. I wish they could but they can't!  They are just there to deliver the baby!  I think she heard the midwife wrong. Hopeing it is lifted by the time baby is born but this could go on till April!!

Is the same ban in effect for Leamington Hosptial? I had a really great delivery there (with my midwife), and it would be worth the drive if you can have more people at the birth (if that's what you want). The Windsor midwives should have privlidges there too unless things have changed since my first.

Geez? I never said she did or didn't misunderstand. No need to get all testy. Just giving an opinion.

Thanks Natalie. It's her first baby so I feel bad that I can't be there to support her. I worry that she will feel scared and alone. Her boyfriend will be with her but it's not the same as having someone there that knows what you are going through. I was grateful that my mom with with me when I had my first baby.
