    Some hospitals still say no - so it's worth checking. Ours encourage it - I think so it saves them lugging the portable pay phone around - one less job for them!!!

    It really hadn't occurred to me to bring anything to amuse myself.

    The hospital were I'll be doesn't have a nursery, babies and mums are kept together, so I can sort of predict any time I'm not sleeping I'll be probably be in a besotted daze staring at him.... I'll throw a book in just in case though.
