After Delivery and Tubal Ligation
KOMmom posted:
My dd is 7 1/2 and ds edd is 10/16. After this we are 100% done and I want to do something permanent rather than pills, shots or IUD's. I've done some reading and saw you can have a tubal ligation most times within a day or two after delivery while you are already in the hospital. Has anyone done this, have any advice, do or don't do? I'm going to talk to my dr. at my appointment next month but I wanted to be armed with some questions before I commit to having it done. I'm also concerned because (unless you have it done during a c-section), there is extra anestesia involved. Does that mean you can't breastfeed or how is that handled? I know my dr. will have my best interests in mind with advising whether or not to have it done but I take more stock in personal experience from other women that have had this (or something like this done).

One of my SIL had her tubes tied and they did it right after the baby was born. The doctor just made sure she had an epidural and then took her in for surgery shortly after the baby was born.

A friend of mine they made her wait 2 days before they would tie her tubes. So I guess it's up to the doctor, hospital and your insurance.
