    Default How many days did you stay in hospital after your elective?

    With my first emergency it was 5 days... Is an elective any different?

    I had my elective Caesar on a Tuesday morning and was out on the Thursday arv. Ideally I would have like to stay another night but they were keen to get me out!

    With my last c-section I left after 48 hours, I wanted to go home after 24 hours but they wanted me to stay a little longer. This time around as long as there are no complications I plan on going home after 24 hours.

    I went private & stayed 5 nights. I think this is fairly normal, most hospitals will offer an early discharge tho if it's not your first baby.

    I personally liked staying as long as I could to get all the help I could :-)

    I stayed 6 but because bub was born just over three weeks early and I had polyhydramnios and they wanted to make sure my uterus clamped down properly.
