Do hospitals clear baby's nose/mouth now or not?

I am really worried about this as when my daughter was born almost 6years ago they never cleared her airways and she was choking really badly on the first night we were home she was coughing up all horrible mucus and going blue and red... I remember calling the hospital and they said it was ok and normal as they don't clear baby's airways anymore but I know several people that have had babys since then and said they did clear their baby's airways... They may say it is ok but it is extremely upsetting and worrying seeing your baby not even a day old choking just worried it may be the case again although I am having this baby at a different hospital. Do you think it depends on different hospitals? X

I think it is the norm that they dont clear babies airways. I am sure the midwife told me why but I cant remember.

If you have any worries might be worth talking to your midwife.xxx

Hi, Hun
I think they assess the baby's needs. Generally they will not do so. Most babies clear this themselves during a normal birth and to suction a baby could possible injure their very tender mouth and nose mucosae even if it is only with a hand-held soft-tip bulb "sucker". If the baby is having trouble breathing while in hospital or there is definite mucous bubbling at nose and/or mouth just after birth they will suction...
If a baby does not cough or gurgle then it would indicate that their airways are clear enough for them to cope and not all babies cry at birth. My son was 100% ok, delivered by c-section, did not need suction. He cried for literally a second or two - just a squeak of protest at being yanked out of his nice warm home into the operating room and then did not cry again for a good while and yet had apgars of 9 and 10...
