I was also put in the maternity ward. I received excellent care. The nursery was on the same floor but in another wing. The nurse did mention the nursery until after I inquired.

Thankfully I shared the room with a lady who had also had a hysterectomy.

I'm surprised at how many of us ladies were put on the maternity ward. I'm so glad I was on the surgical ward, I couldn't have handled being in maternity.

Re: What I wish I'd known before going to hospital...surgical or maternity ward

I was on the maternity floor. My hospital always put hysterectomy patients there and they all have single rooms because its maternity floor and the babies stay with the mothers.

I got excellent care while there. It did not bother me to be there around the babies. I walked down the hall a couple of times to look a the few that were in the window. The nurse told me they were sick and they rarely have babies outside the mother's rooms. I said a prayer for them.

At one point, I did feel a little strange walking the hall, seeing new mothers walking also. But it wasn't enough to cause me to be emotional.

It was pretty quiet and I got to rest without too many disturbances. I wouldn't have had it any other way.
