How long do I have to stay in hospital after elective c-sect? I had a natural birth with dd then an emergency c-sect with ds, I wanted a v-bac this time but have been told it is pretty much impossible. Anyway I don't really like hospital, never had a bad experience all the midwives were awesome at both hospitals I delivered at, I just get very "nervous" if that makes sense. I don't like to be waited on, im a very independent person and dont like being helped to shower, toilet etc.,. Can I go home the next day? It is making me very nervous just thinking about it. With ds I was in hospital for a week, he was in sc though so it was different. I just want to be at home in my own bed with my family.
