Piercing a new born baby's ears

User Profile
i live in minneapolis and would like to get my daughter's ears pierced in the hospital immediately after she's born, but my midwife told me today they no longer do that - it is a long-time tradition and i would hate to pass it over. any ideas on how/where i may get this done? i have the newborn earrings already (a gift from my peruvian family) and am wondering if i shouldn't just do it myself.
