I'm thinking way ahead here, but have any of you managed to either watch or get pictures taken of your section? Ta.

Do you mean when the section is happening in theatre?

Hey OB, I assume you mean during the actual section in theatre? I had no idea you could do that?
Sorry XPosted with TP!

Hi, I know 2 people who have. We didn't want pictures of the actual procedure, its just I was unconscious at birth with my first and we have no pics of L till he was 5 hours old, so with Isaac I wanted photos kind of straight away (of the baby not of the section) so at my later appointments I asked their policy on caneras in theatre, everyone said it was absolutely fine, they said to try not to get the staff faces in the photos but yes they were happy for us to take photos. As it happened Isaac was a section but I went into laboiyr and it was classed as emergency and then he got stuck too so we didn't think to take a photo but when he was born the mw reminded h to get the camera so we have a pic if him about 5 mins old. They said that sometimes there's a student in theatre who will happily take photos for us, which I hope happens the next time so we get a of together iyswim

O actually the 2 I know are ex hitchers but just bought that I know a mder who has too, she has a pic of her first as she's pulled out, not sure who took it though.
My friend is obstetrician (I'm praying she doesn't do my section this time, I couldn't bear it ) but she says that often they lower the screen when baby being pulled out so u can see

I didn't have any pictures taken, but i could see a very fuzzy reflection of what they were doing via the metal light fixture that they were using....i think they realised i could see because there was a blue casing put round the bit not long after... I'd not mind seeing someone elses pictures, but for some reason i wouldn't like to see my own.

Yeah, I mean during the op. I don't want to watch the whole thing but I want to see my baby come out of me, I really struggled at first with T and I think seeing the baby born would make a massive difference. I just wondered if anyone had actually got the hosp to agree to it, I'm glad that some do because I'll be pushing for it when the time comes!

Rusty has an amazing pic of her first at seconds old and there's an old hitcher who has a photo of her LO actually being lifted out. Il message rusty later and see if she will pm u the pic.

I didn't take any pics, but they told H to stand up to look over the curtain barrier just before pulling her out so I guess he could have took a picture then if we'd wanted.
Baby was then put on scales and while H cut the cord the mw took his camera and took loads of pics of him cutting cord and of baby on scales it was great.
I think it depends on how nice the staff are feeling!
