One day, but I have heard of two. I had no issues my last delivery, but my DD had bouts of low O2, so they had me stay an extra day with her at the childbirth center, otherwise I would have been released the following day.
I am sure that your hospital or childbirth center has a policy. Your OB would know.
Typically 48hrs for a vaginal delivery and 72hrs for a cesarean. Barring any complications of course, and this does seem to vary by hospital.
Our midwife and pediatrician will discharge STMs & baby 24hrs post vaginal delivery, assuming mom & babe are both doing well and mom is comfortable leaving a day early. (yes, please. I hate the hospital stay.)
I delivered DD #1 at a birthing center and was able to go home 6 hours after delivery. It was awesome and so nice to be able to sleep in my own bed.
This time, I have to deliver in a hospital and I am totally not looking forwar dot having to stay longer. I am hoping for 24 hours maximum, although I would love to be able to leave earlier!
My hospital keeps me 24 hours after birth, but if you give birth overnight you have to wait until morning shift before they release you. With DS I gave birth at 1:20 am Saturday and wasn't released until 11 am Sunday. They wanted to keep me one more night because they thought I had PPD because I was weapy. Uh, I'm sorry, I haven't slept in 2 days, I have a mutilated, painful vag and I've been alone the majority of the time, sorry if I'm crying a little. LET ME GO HOME!!!!
Depends on the hospital and you and your baby.
We were going to go home the day after I delivered DD but then she had a fever so they wanted to keep her another night.
