    4 nights including the night I gave birth. I would have loved 1 or 2 extra nights.

    Couldn't fault the care I got post birth and the hospital was so comfy I didn't want to leave.

    3 nights - c-section including the night I gave birth
    3 nights - normal birth, but long with tearing
    0 nights - normal birth, some blood loss
    4 nights - DS needed extra monitoring, 2nd degree tear, took that long to get all tests done, it was heaven (private)

    DD - emergency c-section 3 nights
    DS1 - planned c-section 2 nights
    DS2 - emergency c-section 2 nights

    I hate everything about hospitals and couldn't wait to come home. I was only planning on staying one night with DS2 but a few complications arose and I stayed a second night.

    DS - 2 nights although Ob was happy for me to leave after 1 if I wanted. I stayed because he is my first and I had no clue and thought it was a good idea.
    After 2 nights, broken equipment, towels and bed linen not changed (even with blood everywhere) conflicting advice with everyone I saw, things not being written in DS's chart so inaccurate info given, asking 3 times over 2 shifts for my pain killers after an episiotomy and still never getting them, likewise with laxatives they told me to take but never gave me.

    After all that and more, I decided to go home and be confused at home in my own bed.

    If I ever go back for another, I'll go to the private hospital before going back to that hospital!

    DS1 (induced VB ) - 36 hours.

    DS2 (spontaneous then helped along with syntocin)- 24 hours (should have been longer due to complications but I was so traumatised I begged to go home)

    DS3 (spontaneous Vb) almost 48 hours. Would have only been 24 hours but DS3's blood sugar levels dropped dangerously low, so we had to stay until they came up.

    4 nights with DD. Which was 2 too many

    Hoping to stay about 24 hours with this bub, max of 48 if all goes reasonably to plan.

    About 48 hours. I'd had about 4 hours broken sleep in 3 days and felt like a zombie. Between our bub wanting constabt cuddles, the baby crying in the next room and the buzzers constantly going off, I couldn't get any rest. I jumped at the idea of in home nurse checkups for 3 days if I left hospital within the 48 hours and wanted nothing more than my own bed.

    Dd1 1 night before birth and 3 nights after birth too long to be honest last night was really hard for me

    Dd2 2 nights just the right amount of time recovered enough and felt ready to go home

    Dd3 1 night before birth 1 night after probably should have stayed and extra night but hate being away from home the first night at home was exhausting

    This time in undecided if I will leave asap or stay I guess I will see what happens at the time
