What will the hospital room be like?
Generally each hospital room at PCMC has two beds/cribs separated by a curtain and a shared bathroom. Babies are given a hospital crib with adjustable sides. Some parents have had success asking for an adult-sized bed so they could sleep with their infants, but the general policy is against doing so. With each bed/crib there will be one rocking chair, one fold-out chair (where a parent can sleep), a TV, a phone (which was nice because my cell phone reception was poor), and a sink. Kind of your standard hospital set-up. The bathroom in the room does not have a shower; there is a shared shower on each hall.
