    I was in for four nights after DS was born (a straightforward vaginal delivery). They pushed me for an extra night but I was so keen to come home. That was in a private hospital.

    A few of the mums in my mother's group went home on the same day or after only one night (public hospital).

    DD1 I had to stay the minimum 3 days. It was awful. I hate hospitals, They wouldn't let partners stay, shared room so when your bub is quiet, the other one is screaming and vice versa, etc. No rest. Pleh.

    DD2 she was born at 2pm, and I was almost released at 6pm, but then they found something in her bloods they wanted to recheck, so I had to wait til the morning. Midwives visited at home for the first few days, which was great.

    This one I will be hoping to be out ASAP again. I'd have homebirths if I could. I really, really hate hospitals.

    DS1: 2 nights
    DD: 12 hours (they wanted to watch her as I was strep +)
    DS2: 3 hours
    This time I will go as soon as they let me! Nothing better than being at home as a family!! :-)

    Midwife told me last week that once the baby poos, wees and feeds, provided all else is fine you are free to go. Minimum stay 3 hours post birth. Seems crazy to me, i think i'll be wanting a sleep afterwards but i guess they know what they are doing.

    I was dying for sleep after being awake for over 24 hours.. Just could not sleep in hospital with 3 other women in the same room, 20 babies on the ward all crying etc. Ear plugs.. Take ear plugs!
