With my 1st I had him Sunday morning and went home Monday evening.

With my 2nd he was born at 7:30am and they planned to discharge me before 12 noon. However I nearly fainted when showering so they sent me to rest on the ward for the rest of the day, then I had awful afterpains and requested strong painkillers so ended up having an overnight stay!

I had to stay in 48 hours with my first as I needed a blood transfusion.
With my second I was home in 24 hours.

36 hours with my first due to having to wait to be discharged from the ward by the doctor but was delayed .

4 hours with my second, would have been sooner but I fainted so I had to be monitored for another hour before they let me

5 days with my first but I had a traumatic delivery and haemorrhaged badly.

Went the next day with my second and that was only because I was breastfeeding and they wanted to check it was going well, otherwise i'd have left 6 hours after having her.

About 4 days with my first as he had low blood sugars and wasn't feeding properly. My second was born around 1am so I stayed the night and left around 2pm the next day. My 3rd was born 3pm and I went home at 8pm that night, only stayed so long because I'm rhesus negative and they needed to check bloods. In my opinion much much nicer going home for the night!!

I had my girl Friday morning, we left late Sunday afternoon. But that was only because I had strep B and they had to finish all their checks on her, the wards were very busy with 'new year babies' as the midwives put it

I delivered both of my girls in Naval hospitals, with my first I stayed 3 days which is their standard for first time moms. My 2nd they said 24 hours but I had a traumatic birth (severe pre-eclampsia) so had to stay a week. The only thing I liked about staying in hospital was that I could sleep haha. But I'd rather go home asap so you don't have Dr's and nurses bugging you every 2 hours
