Do u get your own room ? I think that would make all the difference haha. I can't stand the lack of privacy. Six women in one room plus six babies it's enough to drive u crazy. The support would be awesome but as its not private etc I just need to get out there for my home comforts ya know

Yeah a private labor/recovery room with a bathroom. Wow! yeah if I had to share a room like that I'd be begging to go home too!

I ended up being in a week hated every single second and desperately wanted to be at home having never spent a single night in hospital went in for induction which meant 4 days and then csection followed by another three days stay! Praying pleading and begging for a normal birth this time I am petrified of a planned section (my first was classed as emergency and I had a general anaesthetic)

My dd was born by emcs late on the wednesday night, after >20 hours in active labour, and we left very very late on the saturday night - they had been getting set up to dscharge us on the Saturday afternoon but then they couldn't find the doctor to sign me out, and then he was in theatre doing a section, and then another section, so 5pm turned into nearly midnight. They tried to get me to stay an extra night because of that but I had my heart set on going home...I hadn't thought about having to climb the stairs at home though...OUCH. So I was in for nearly 4 days in total, including labour.

After the c-section I was allowed back into my labour room, so DH could stay the night with us, and after that I went onto the ward for one night. I'm staff at the hospital I was in, so they found me a private room for the next 2 nights. It had a lot more room and had a private bathroom, which was nice and made me less reluctant to pee (hard to take a 10lb newborn to the loo with you when you can barely walk!) but it wasn't really much quieter, you could still hear all the noise and buzzers going and stuff, but I felt completely isolated, didn't have a clue what I was doing, and was massively struggling with breastfeeding...I'd push the buzzer for help and it'd take upwards of half an hour for someone to come, by which time dd was frantic.

Next time I'll be going for a vbac so hopefully we'll only be in one night max...I think I'd feel more relaxed at home, and my mum will probably be visiting to help look after dd, so won't need to do anything much but feed the new baby.

My first was a csection so I was in 2 nights - I was miserable and desperate to go home.

My second was a VBAC - I had him at 1am and left hospital around 9am so I was in about 8 hours.

I hated being in the hospital and just wanted to get on with normal life in our normal environment. I felt much better in myself mentally and physically the second time.

Obviously everyone's circumstances are different and some people want to or need to stay at hospital but I certainly wouldn't feel guilty for going home quickly!

I had two natural births. Here, the options are go home or stay on a ward. So I went home after about 12 hours with both. Will do the same again if everything goes smoothly.

With my first I stayed 3 nights, it was lovely, I struggled to BF and was a single mother so the early help was amazing!

With my second I was adament that I'd get discharged hours after birth, but I lost a lot of blood and was very anaemic so I had to spend 2 awful nights on the ward.

5 days. I was told no matter the outcome of the labour I would have had to stay. I ended up having a section any how. I didnt mind the hospital.
