How Long After C Section Till I Can Hold My Baby

My dh got to hold him right away but then they had to take him to NICU for a bit because he'd swallowed meconium. I think I got to hold him about an hour after I was taken to recovery.

I got to hold my little girl like 2 mins after birth. The nurse cleaned her up, and brought her to me. I held her for about 10 minutes, then they took her to get her measured, and blood taken. I had an epidural for the c-section, and after they took her away, I couldn't hold her until I could move both of my legs. So I sat in a room, and waited. That was frustrating, because I wanted them to move so bad, but they wouldn't budge. I got to hold her for a second time, about 2 hours later! It wasn't too bad now that I have her all the time, but it was a lifetime to wait to get to know my little girl!
