    I left 5 days after my first, 5 days after my second, and asap with my next two. I gave birth to my third daughter in the middle of the night and stayed all day before leaving so my Dad could meet her (Mum was staying with me and Mum and Dad are not on good terms), and with my last daughter I had her at 12.12am and left at 5:30am. They do have drs that work at night also, so it really shouldnt matter what time bubs is born.

    I had ds and dd at the birth centre, gave birth 1am and 12:15 respectively. So we got to shower, sleep and had to wait for the pead to check baby before we were released, was after 10 before we got out of there! So not 4 hours.

    28 days!!!!!!

    3 weeks at major general hospital 3 hours from home. My twins were born at 35 weeks and were in special care nursery while I was bounced around the hospital as a boarder mum!

    1 week at local general hospital. We roomed in and were finally released with 3x a week visits from child health nurse!

    My husband doesn't understand how I stayed sane in hospital for so long!!

    I live 45 minutes from hospital and home mw visits weren't going to happen, plus DH wasn't taking time off.

    DS1 arrived early hours Monday by emer caesar and I went home on the Saturday.

    DS2 arrived Wednesday morning (natural) and I went home on Saturday. I have trouble with milk supply so I wanted my milk in before I left.

    Thanks everyone. Fingers crossed all goes to plan and I can leave after 6 or so hours.

    DS1 - Had him at 9:30pm went home the next day.
    DS2 - Born at 2:11pm (was there the night before for induction), so left at around 8:30pm. Was told I would have to wait 6 hours and I was telling the midwives that he would be born wayyy before dinner time so I had a chance of leaving that day. They were adamant that if he was born too late in the day I would have to stay the night. Midwives did home visits for 5 days after.

    Good luck!
