Recent Oakland L&D Experience?
Hi all, I'll be delivering at Kaiser Oakland next month, I delivered my first baby there in 2018 and had a great experience. I was hoping to hear from parents who delivered recently since COVID on their experience. thanks in advance!
1) I recall a lot of nurses coming in and out during my stay, is this still the case? Were you comfortable with the COVID protocols?
2) Was your partner allowed to leave and come back to the room? (this is more of a concern as we have a toddler at home)
3) Did you feel that you received sufficient lactation support?
4) did they still have newborn photographer come take photos?
[ Moderator note: there are several recent discussions about this on the website: Childbirth at Kaiser Oakland ]
