UK Stay in Hospital Afterwards Shortened! (Apparently)


Last section they wanted me to stay put in the hospital routinely for 5 days but I discharged after 3 due to an annoying LOUD woman across the room from me! I was fine anyway, recovered really well.

Anyway I am dreading them makin me stay in for the 5 nights this time around but after chatting to someone in my local shop who's just had a baby by section, she proclaimed they want you out after 2 nights now! She says it's because they need the beds and the 5 days is not mandetory anymore - anyone else know if this is true (I hope so!!)??

I was speaking to my midwife about this last week and she reckoned 48hrs although they would let me go after 24hrs if all was ok and I wanted to go home!

See I'm only bothered about having a short stay because I don't fancy leaving my 2 year old son for a few nights as I think this new baby will be enough for him to cope with!

Seeing the consultant on Tues for my 28 week check up, will ask her and hopefully get my date (so excited!!! )

Go Sections!!! lol x

It was 4 years ago but i stayed for 3 night with my eldest.

My second was a VBAC and i stayed in for 4 nights. As much as i didn't want to leave my DS for too long i knew that the time in hospital would be the only time i'd get to just be with my DD. I was right - once i got out of hospital poor DD was pretty much sidelined lol
