My plan was to have skin to skin contact with my son when he was born. Due to complications during my labour, I needed an emergency C-section. They took him, did everything they needed to, wrapped him and gave him back. I held him while they stitched me up and then they took him again while I went to ‘recovery’ to rest. I couldn’t rest as my adrenaline was high and I wanted to hold my son I’d carried for 9 months. While I’m grateful that he is here, and the complications weren’t that bad, I just can’t get my head around not getting the important skin to skin contact. Any suggestions or help from someone in a similar situation will be greatly appreciated.
