The Maternity Ward

This week Jeff and I had the opportunity to tour our hospital's maternity ward. I have to say, we were pleasantly surprised with the set-up.

First of all, single rooms! Yes, I said it. Single rooms. We get to have a room all to ourselves for delivery and then for post-partum. They are very roomy and have a lot of amenities. Each room has a pull out sofa (so Jeff has room to sleep), a tv/dvd set up, a rocking chair, adjustable lighting, a blanket warmer, a bathroom with a small soaking tub, and access to large jacuzzi tubs on the floor. They also have cribs so you can keep the baby in the room with you. You can even get room service! This way Jeff doesn't have to leave me during labor. ;)

Although we don't know exactly how the birth will go, it is comforting to know where it will all happen. Now to create our birth plan.
