    I don't think that's a fair comment to make. There is no "target". The reason they have 10k babies a year is because they're the biggest maternity hospital in the country. Those that go home after 24hrs are usually those that have had babies before, had a straightforward pregnancy/birth with no complications and want to go. Also as the mater is a tertiary referral hospital (receiving women from all over QLD and northern NSW) those women are definitely not in the majority.
