I am having a elective C section in a Public Hospital in Sydney. At my last appointment the nurse told me I will be discharge after 48 hrs (2 nights). I had my first baby same hospital and got discharged after 3 nights as I had a 4th degree tear and could barely open my legs to move.
I think it's not fair that they are making women leave so early after a C section. I will be fighting this again to stay 3 nights.
I can't find the hospitals policy regarding length of stay in on their website.
My friend is going private and allowed up to 6 nights. I don't need that long but I don't want to have this pressure hanging over my head that I must leave after 2 nights.
