With DD I was admitted on a Saturday for PE then had her by emergency csec on the wednesday. She went straight to NICU until Sunday morning and then we were allowed home on Monday morning. All up I was in hospital for 9 nights but only 5 of those were after giving birth. I went public and DH stayed in with me the whole time.

1 night before c-section to monitor my BP and reduced fetal movement, plus Dr wasn't sure what time my c-section would be when he admitted me. 5 nights afterwards.
It was the right amount of time. I was happy to go home and "sleep" in my own bed and eat lighter, healthier meals.
I went private and DH was able to stay with me the whole time.

DS1 - 5 days after emergency c-section, difficult recovery and him in special care for 3 days.
DS2 - 6 hours after an amazing VBAC. I was bouncing off the walls and ready to go home after 2 hours but had to wait around for the all clear.

DS1....4 days, He was born at 36 weeks so they wanted us to have established feeding before we left (vaginal delivery). I was in a private room and so bored and fed up by the end.
DD1....less than 24 hours, I would have gone earlier but they wanted her to do a week first

Ds1- 4 hours. Straight forward vb and we were more than happy to go home where we were comfortable (not a fan of hospy's), we had plenty of home visits in the days following the birth.
Ds2- never went to hospy, he was born at home (unplanned) and it was perfect, just jumped straight.into our big comfy bed for newby snuggles. Again, we had lots of home support visits following the birth.

#1 C/S 6 nights, 7 days. Summer, not so busy, wanted to recover proper - had feeding issues and had a massive morphine reaction post op that they were dealing with too.
#2 VBAC 3 nights, 4 days, busiest month of the year, I was in the only double room with my roomie having endless visitors. Was working (fruitlessly) on feeding - but wanted out, I was on the aisle side of the room and had no real light or window. Home was a thousand times better.

DS - one night before (monitoring) and two nights after (induced vaginal birth)I had to stay for them to keep an eye on my blood pressure.
DD - one night. I left 15 hours after she was born (spontaneous vaginal birth). Had she not been born in the late evening I would've left the same day.

Born at 8am, home by 3 pm.
First Bub, spontaneous vaginal delivery and minimal tearing. Was very happy to go home though as a shared room with 3 other women was not where I wanted to spend our first night together especially without DF. Loved being home as a little family. Will do the same with this bub except DS will be with Mum so we can have our first night with just DD and then be the 4 of us the next night
