I would have loved this new technology when I delivered my sons via c-section.  My youngest by a couple of seconds was delivered breech (feet first) and he swallowed fluid.  So the doctors allowed me to see him from afar because they had to immediately take him to transition/observation and then to the Neo Natal Unit.  My boyfriend stayed with him and gave me updates and assured me everything was going to be ok. But not even the drugs could ease my worry.

I don’t think I saw my son until the next morning probably around 3am.  I’m sure the nurses hated me, because there was so much attitude and cursing coming from my hospital room.  I just wanted to lay eyes on my baby; I needed to touch him and make sure he was ok for myself.  Not seeing him and not being aware of what he was going through or what was being done to him was one of the scariest things I have ever experienced.  I wish I had access to this, every hospital should implement this for moms and babies.
