How long after birth did you go home?


I gave birth in a birth centre and I went home the same day, about 7 hours after the birth. I feel so guilty that I went home and didn't stay the night. Has anyone else gone home the same day?

I did stay the night as my son was born late evening but I was out of there quicker than a shot the next morning, mainly because my nan was visiting and she was making a roast

This time as I'm high risk I have been told I will need to stay in at least 24 hours

Dont feel guilty about it hun

First time I stayed 3 night's I think as my son was in neonatal. Second time I was 10 hours, should have been 6 but they were messing around with paperwork.
This time if there not done with paperwork by about 8/pm in staying the night, didn't enjoy going home at 11pm starving

Why do you feel guilty?
My 1st was born at 6.20am, we went home the next afternoon. I had to stay in overnight as I had a catheter in but had planned to stay one night anyway.
My 2nd was born at 1.38pm, we went home midday the next day. I didn't want to stay over but she needed observations so we needed to.
My 3rd was born 12.21pm and we were home by 5.30pm, so only 5 hours later. It would have been sooner but it took a while to get the discharge papers.

Why would you feel guilty? I think home is the best place for baby to be!

My LO was born at 5:30 pm and I went home at noon the next day. If she had been born earlier in the day we wouldn't have spent the night.

I ended up with c-sections. I stayed 4 days with my son and 3 with my daughter.

When my grandma had my mum she stayed in for 2 weeks as was the norm back then. She said it was wonderful!

Both of mine were born just after midnight and we went home at lunchtime so about 12 hours after they were born!

My first was born on a Sunday morning and we went home early afternoon on Monday. With your second they often send you home the same day if things go smoothly.
