    Interesting reading how different it can be among Australian hospitals but my initial impression, not knowing exactly what the midwife said, would be that it is 48 hours if all is ok because it is your second baby and you tend to not stay at the hospital as long as your first with any birth if all is ok.
    I feared getting utd when i was working over there especially after the stories id hear from the nurses i worked with having babies at our hospital care was attrocious。 not sure how c section ladies were treated but i used to hear regularly of women giving birth in hospital entrance. Labouring in the delivery suite was not on as there werent enough beds in hospital i worked at and it was the only hospital in an hrs radius so most women weren't allowed up to delivery suite basically till they were giving birth, scared immensly.

    I did email the hospitals patient representative and got an email back from the hospital saying standard practice is 72hrs for C- section and 48 for vaginal birth. I will be taking a copy of that email with me when I go in for my C-section.
    You'll most likely get home visiting midwives as well.

    Just see how you go - you may find that you're keen to get out of there after 2 nights, but have the 3rd night available if you need it.

    And we freaking wonder why there are such low breastfeeding rates, & high rates of PND?! When I was kicked out after 18ish hrs with my 2nd, you may say no worries, I've done it before. But my baby wasnt feeding, & by the time a home midwife cane to visit the following day, my baby had lost 12% of her birthweight & was weak &dehydrated, & I had severe mastitis & was beside myself with sickness. It took us both a month to recover, she was over a month old when she finally returned to her birthweight. It was a horrible start that didnt need to happen if we were only kept in hospital an extra night.

    Was it what she wanted though?

    I've had people discharging themselves at 2-3 hours after birth recently - even though policy states minimum 6 hours before discharge.

    A friend of mine was recently forced to go home 4 hours after thr birth. It was definitely not what she wanted.

    Yeah she was happy to go home. Was a 3 hour birth . Very straight forward. Community nurses came every 2 days for 2 weeks.

    Well then if she's happy/wanting to go home, I don't see what the issue is.

    One of the public hospitals does that where i am as there aren't enough beds, women get no choice you have to go when told between 4-6 hrs if it is a vb if is early hrs of morning you can stay till breakfast but then must go. If theres a complication you are basically allowed to stay 24 hrs. Work colleague had to fight to get her young daughter to stay overnight after bub was born at midnight and there was a massive post partum haemmorhage 6 hrs later ambulances wouldn't have made it to them and hospital in time to have saved her. Sure c section is 48 hrs maximum no longer.

    I wasn't saying 'no worries' I was just stating a fact, from my experience as a doula, that it's usually routine with many hospitals that you do not stay as long with subsequent births, if all is well, as you do after your first birth.

    Your's is obviously an extreme situation but staying in hospital isn't necessarily the answer to lower PND or successful breastfeeding, it's about quality postpartum care whether that is at home or in the hospital.
