Last week, Ricky and I attended a hospital tour at Missouri Baptist Hospital to prepare for little Ethan’s arrival.
Our group tour began in the lobby with a little Q &A session, most of the couples were first time parents, but it was nice to have a few returning parents to ask all of the good questions. Our guide then walked us up to the Labor and Delivery department and showed us where we would check in and we took a tour of the floor. We weren’t able to view an actual labor room because so many babies had been born that day!
While the tour was a little overwhelming and scary, it was nice to learn about some of their standard birthing procedures and how the hospital cares for their new patients. The tour really made me realize how little time we have left before the baby gets here!
