Hi! I will be giving birth in the US and was wondering what presents (if any) is it customery to give to your labor and delivery staff once the baby is born? Flowers, chocolates, wine, something else? Whom exactly would you give the presents to (doctor, nurse, basket for entire staff)?? Please, advise.....

I work on the floor in a hospital in the cardiac unit but it was always nice when somebody gave us chocolate for everyone to share. Also pizza is good because you can't always stop to eat so you can grab a slice. Once we had a women give us a couple baskets of candles and we each could take one....(women dominate our floor). Hope this helps

When I was in the hospital a few years ago for a non-pregnancy related surgery, my mom brought in a basket of different goodies (not sure all what) for any staff who were caring for me. I believe she took it to the nurse's station (with my name and room # on it, so people knew who it was from), but you could always have it in your room instead.

My doctor only wanted a photograph of me and the baby and my nurses made me promise to check in with them every time my baby had an appointment - but they refused any other gift.

I would say a basket full of goodies would be nice! Everyone loves sweets! And a picture of the baby of course!

I have never heard of giving the hospital staff or Dr. a gift. They will be making enough off of us as it is. It does sound like a nice jesture, but I can promise you they all make a lot more than I do.

I have never heard of giving the doc or hospital staff gifts either...this is my third and I never have as much as they charge I think that is gift enough

My friends mother is a nurse and she will occasionally get gifts from patients but only because she goes above & beyond what most of the other nurses do. It's not necessary, but it is a nice gesture.
