Comment By: Kayli Stofle
Was only there for pushing / epidural birth and everything seemed normal except when placenta was delivered. Fundal massage seemed very rough and painful.
Comment By: Jennifer Buonamassa
Newer hospital policy that no one can stay in the room when a mom gets an epidural. Must clear the room for 30 minutes. Even spouses must leave the room. This is rough on the mother at a time when she needs/wants support.
