My mum left hospital ASAP every time. The shortest time was 3 hours and she had to sign a form saying if anything happened to her or my little sister it was not the hospital's fault and she chose to discharge herself against the doctors recommended 6 hours. I was in 3 days for DD1 and DD2 and 5 day for DD3

5 days with dd1 with dd2 I wanted to be out the same day I had her at midday and left at 8pm so 8 hours after I could have left after 4 but bub had a few bad vomits so I wanted to stay a little longer the birth suite wasn't busy so I just stayed there until I was ready... Good luck with your bub hope everything goes to plan

Baby born at midnight after arriving at hospital half an hour before. Midwives finished doing all the paperwork around 5am. Could have gone home then but we were too tired to drive and bub hadn't wanted her first feed, so they told me to stay and have a sleep and see a LC when they came on. Saw one and was ready to go after that but it took till 7pm to actually leave- there was always some reason why we couldn't go just yet! So 19 hours all up.

Ds1 - delivered at 1.35am, stayed 3 days.
Ds2 - delivered 10.35pm, stayed 3 days.
I could see the roof of my house from the hospital bed so they didn't mind me leaving

For my last I didn't birth in a hospital it was a private birth centre but I gave birth in the afternoon and left at lunch the next day.
For my first she was in nicu then special care so we stayed a week.

With my first DD1 I had her at 12:18pm and left the same day at 8:30pm. With my twin girls I was in hospital for eight days however they were eight weeks prem. I wanted to stay as an inpatient as long as possible because the hospital was an hour away. It got to the point where I missed my other daughter terribly so I discharged myself and started commuting for the next four weeks so I could spend some time with her.

As soon as I was allowed, couldn't wait to go home. But for me it wasn't so quick. First three public last one private. They all had a few little issues so couldn't leave sooner.
2 days yay!
