Hospital Amusements

Ella was born at the Brigham and Women's hospital in Boston, near Fenway park, which is widely considered one of the best hospitals in the country.

I was really very happy with our experience there (heinous parking costs aside and no, I cannot let it go). The nurses were wonderful, the labor and delivery rooms were extremely nice, the food was generally quite delicious, and the lactation staff was superb.

But my absolute favorite thing about the hospital was the TV in each post-partum room, which had a list of videos for patients to watch, including ones about installing a carseat, tips for nursing, and what to expect in the first six weeks.

Oh yes, and several videos about teen abstinence and birth control.

Seems to me that if you're sitting in the post-partum bed, it might be a case of too little, too late as far as those topics go.
