    I stayed two nights with the first two. First time because I was a clueless first time mum. Second time because baby was macrosomic so needed blood sugar levels taken for the first 24 hours. I was lucky and scored a private room so stayed the extra night to bond with my baby.
    Third time - 10 hours. Ward was packed so I just skipped the ward altogether. I would have gone home earlier but my bleeding was a bit excessive at first so waited until that slowed down and I felt well enough to go home.

    I went in a 7am, had a spinal and epi. Left 7pm same night. Apparently rare in private hospitals but best thing I could have done plus they gave us $400!

    DD - private emerg csection foetal distress 4 nights
    DS - I was high risk from a medical condition that happened to me after DD was born so I stayed 7 days under public. Tried vbac but ended up with csection. It was amazing having a full week to recover and bond with my new baby, while feeling safe that I was being monitored. I had a hiccup in there on day 3 so glad I was there.

    DS - stayed one night because it was so noisy. I just wanted to sleep in peace in my own bed.
    DD - one night. She was an easy birth and DS was sick and wanted me home.

    We arrived at hospital at 6am, I had DS at 11am, and went home lunch time the next day. Could have stayed another night but would have been moved from the birth centre to the ward and I didn't want to be apart from DH, so we went home. We have had midwife support at home for 4 weeks though so it didn't feel necessary to stay longer, and the midwife team in hospital was excellent, so much so that I felt confident enough to go home that early.

    DS was born a month early, so we stayed 8 days as he was in special care.

    I was soooo ready to go home by day 4! I actually felt so disoriented when I left the hospital, like the world was too big and bright.

    Hoping to only stay my priv hospital's standard 4 days next time.
