    I was 5 nights. I was allowed to go home after 3 nights but I would've had to go back to get the staples out. Once I left I had no desire to go back so I figured it was just easier to stay. I only wanted to leave cause of how uncomfortable the bed was after a c-section.

    I went public with 2 different hospitals. Ds1 I stayed 4 nights and ds2 was overnight and discharged 14hrs after birth, totally my choice. Both times I brought bub and me towels simply because the hospital issue ones arent soft enough/big enough for my liking. They did offer cloth nappies if your going with cloth but disposable is byo

    I only have one child. She is 16mo.

    I had a c-section, after 2 days I checked my self out and requested home visits.
    That was through public.

    Was much better for us.

    I was told yesterday by the MW that it's a minimum of 24 hrs for a 'straight forward vag delivery with no complications etc' but they generally encourage women to stay at least 2 - 3 days. She said there is a lot of pressure on the bigger hospitals for bed space, that's why women are getting sent home 4hrs after birth, but she said it's wrong because so much can go wrong.

    DD1 I stayed for 4 days.

    DD2 I only stayed a couple of hours.

    This time (providing all goes well again) I wi be at the birth centre and they only allow you to stay 4-6 hours so it will be a quick one again. They do give you the option if you want and if there is a bed available in the main hospital maternity ward of stayin long but tbh I hate sharing a room and hate the noises of hospital so the sooner I'm home the better. I get daily visits from the midwife anyway for the
    First 1-2 weeks.

    All were vaginal deliveries.

    I only stayed 2 hrs after cause it was also my ds2 birthday so was really wanting all the family together and I had a shower got changed and truely felt like nothing happened. Only had 4hrs in hospital from the second I got there had ds and left the midwives were happy for me to go and came to our house the next day and a couple days after that to do all the checks. like I said everyone is different you do what you feel is comfortable with at the time.

    Had the baby on Sunday morning, was out of there tuesday afternoon. I had a cs and they were trying to get me to stay 5 nights.... I would have died.
    They had me in the room with this lady that had 20 visitors all day! They wouldn't stop talking and I couldn't rest!

    3 weeks Making my hospital stay a total of 11 weeks.
    Complicated pregnancy and birth, prem twin DD's and SCN stay. I was allowed to stay as we were in a hospital 4 hours from home and was establishing breastfeeding.
    Hate hospitals because of this and would only like to stay 1 night this time.
