DD1- One night, the hospital said the usual stay for VB's was 3 nights but I hate hospitals so got early discharge with the CMP visiting me daily for about a week.
DS- One night, I wanted to go home after 6 hours but they wanted to monitor his temp. Discharged to dom midwives this time.
DD2- Two nights because she was 36+1 weeks and I had retained membranes and had lost a tad more blood than usual so just wanted to make sure all was okay. We spent one night at home before she was admitted to the SCN for 2 weeks, I spent three nights out of that period on the maternity ward.
DD3- One night before the birth after the gel was administered and one night after she was born. I could have used an extra night energy wise but I still chose to be discharged.

DS1 26 hours. VB very straightforward. Was a little longer than I'd have wanted but he was born in the morning so we stayed 1 night then had to wait for paed checks
DS2 6 hours. Thought I could go after 4 but they prefer 6 plus they hadn't got the paed check/paperwork done until later. Again very straightforward VB.
Both at birth centre. Would stay for 4-6 again.

"Spin off" how long did you stay in hospital
I went to hospital at 1am, DS was born at 8am and spent 8 hours in SCN and I went home 48 hours later. I felt really ready to go home after 2 nights and luckily DS was given the all ok by then.

DS - 1 week. He had some issues with his temp and couldn't wear clothes until day 8. It was the middle of winter and I didn't want to leave until it was resolved. Lucky we were private, I guess.
DD - I was ready to leave 6 hrs after birth, but ended up having to stay overnight to await blood test results.
Both of mine were vaginal deliveries.

They wanted to kick me out after 48 hrs but i had a 4th degree tear and huge breastfeeding issues. Luckily my MIL went up the desk and said they should not 'kick me out' and they said he can't do that so then I gained the courage to demand to stay another night.

9 hours after Dd was born. Less than 24 hours in total.

Dd1 - 3 nights after a vb and it was a good amount of time.
Dd2 - 5 nights after a vb because I ended up with an infection and then another 2 nights before she was discharged.
