So I had my first Parentcraft class last Thursday, and for half of it we could ask a midwife any questions we had. One of them was 'How long will I be in hospital?' and due to NHS debt etc, if everything goes smoothly (no forceps etc) I will be out in 6 hours! Unless I go in at like 10pm or something. I'm actually really pleased, I love the idea of a homebirth but don't know how I'm gonna cope as this is my first bubs. So going home that soon after the birth sounds fab to me! My mum was shocked though! When she had me, she stayed in hospital for a week!! My, how times have changed!
