After each birth, why and how did you feel about the length of time.
Ds1 - emergency c-section 3 days
Dd - no complication Vbac 5 days as she had jaundice (I was very ready to get home by the end)
Ds2 - Vbac, 3 days - I would have been happy to stay another night before heading home to the demands of a growing family! Hoping to stay at least 3 nights this time.

"Spin off" how long did you stay in hospital

1 night with DD she was born in the early morning and I left the next day after lunch. We had to stay cause I was strep b positive and she had 24 hour monitoring otherwise probably would have left the same day. One night was enough for me haha.
This time hoping to stay more than one night to have some bonding and alone feeding time.

23 hours. I could have stayed an extra night but my husband couldn't have stayed with me as it was a public hospital (although they let him stay the first night) so I went home so we could be together.
It was totally my decision but in hindsight longer would have been good to help me more with breastfeeding. But given the issues I had I doubt one more night would have helped anyway

5 nights after an emergency cs. I was cut vertically & horizontally, so I was pretty damn sore!
I felt like it was the right amount of time.

Had a natural delivery for both of my children, and stayed 4 nights each time. I could easily have stayed for a couple more nights. I loved the hospital and didn't want to leave.

Dd1- 4 days, and was nowhere near prepared to go home (both of us were struggling majorly with feeding)
Dd2- within 12 hours. I wanted to go home that afternoon, but they couldnt organise all the stuff for discharge in time.
Dd3- 6 hours. Would have been a lot sooner but the midwives let me sleep for a bit while they took bub until she wanted her next feed.
Dd4- within 4 hours. Again would have been sooner except midwife gave dh and I time alone with our new addition because it was the only time it would be just the 3 of us.
