This is a question posed by one of my providers. How should it be billed?

"I accepted a lateral transfer from VVMC last night- a woman who had an emergency c/s at Hospital A and her baby was sent to Hospital B… she wanted to come because the baby was in critical condition and they weren't sure that the baby would make it through the night. She was not stable for discharge 8h after her c/s. I accepted her and we will resume her post-op care… is there a way I should code her admission differently- I'm not sure how to code this one at all, since she was transferred essentially because of her newborn and not her, although she definitely still needed hospitalization for her post-op status."
