I am 33 weeks pregnant and the hospital I am going to deliver at has set visiting rules for flu season.

For labor deliver and recovery as well as the mother baby unit no one is allowed to come and visit mom and baby during the entire duration of there hospital stay except for moms spouse or 1 support person and healthy grandparents. Absolutely no children are allowed into any of the units.

Is the hospital near you instating any rules like these for flu season?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Im in vermont and not prego but had a visit to the OBGYN last week and posted everywhere was that at our hospital only 2 visitors are allowed on labor and delivery and it has to be the same two ppl the whole time and then once you move to the maternity ward childeren under twelve are not allowed to visit and I think that there was also a limit to the nucmer of visitors you could have there too

Quoting Brittany:

When i had my daughter about 4 months ago in New York it was like that. Expect only the babys father could be there and if there was no babys father you where on your own.
