    Discharge time is 11 am because you let them know that you want to leave and they start the paperwork that time. If you don't let them know, then they will not include you in the day's discharge..

    I have told them that I was to discharge that day but after they finished everything, we only left the hospital at 6 pm.. It depends on how busy they are..

    I stayed in the hospital for a total of 5 days I think.
    2 days before and 3 days after. No one asked me to leave. :-)
    I was first time mom and they gave me very good care with bfing and all.

    But you do get asked each morning if you want to be discharged because they need to start the paperwork if you do.
    Some people like to go home straight away, some don't.
    I suppose you just tell them what you think when they ask you.

    It is a hospital, not a hotel so, if you are well and all, you wouldn't want to hang around at the hospital.

    I found my baby books from my two I had at the hospital today. And in both I've written "couldn't leave hospital til I'd done #1 and #2." So basically as soon as my bowels were working I was preparing to leave.

    I can't remember for the life of me if they asked this or if it was something I was told but thought I'd add it in for you.

    I know this. But have no experience with babies at all and got worried when the midwife was talking about the early discharge 6 hours after birth!! It sounds like you get two nights but they try to get you out early if you're ready to go, which I don't think I will be.

    I'm glad most of you have had positive experiences! It makes me feel much less anxious.

    Oh yeah, I get that. Its not a hotel but birth is big, new baby can be scary, and well includes - I think - mentally and emotionally

    But yeah after a night or two your own bed and own food start seeming pretty sweet. And for me the time in hospital didnt quite feel real. I dunno. Its like she truly "entered the world" when we left.

    I recommend bringing your own pillow
