How long were you kept in the hospital after your C/S?

Have the policies changed on this in the last few years that you know of?

Re: How long were you kept in the hospital after your C/S?

I stayed 3 or 4 days with my first, 24 hours with my second and 4 days with my third.
The first time was 2005, second was 2007 and I left quickly because I wanted to go home and felt fine, my last one was in 2012, I stayed the full time allowed because the recovery was harder and I wanted to stay as long as I could so they could take care of me. Knowing I had three kids at home, the hospital stay sounded better..lol

They asked me if I was ready to go home after 48hours but I opted to stay the max of 4 days because I felt horrible.

Re: How long were you kept in the hospital after your C/S?

I stayed 2 days with #2, 3 days with #3, and 4 days with #4 (the max they let you stay over here). I begged them to let me stay longer (4 kids, 4 and under, awaited me at home), but they said vacation was over! haha.

The first time, I couldn't bear to leave my firstborn for 2 days... he was 14 mos. old and it felt like forever. When I got home, I realized I should have stayed another day. Then with my 3rd, I did that, but got home and realized I should have stayed the maximum numbers just to get more healing under my belt.

A friend that had a c/s baby was the next day after us in to the hospital was I tink a day or 2 after we got out when we were doing check as we were jaundice. So I think it was 4 days.

Re: How long were you kept in the hospital after your C/S?

First I stayed 3 nights. This time I'm staying all 4 if I can. It was a mistake to go home after 3 nights. I wasn't ready.

Re: How long were you kept in the hospital after your C/S?

First I stayed from Thursday 8pm(time of csection) until Sunday mid afternoon. 2.5ish days? I was given the option to go home Saturday evening and declined.

Second I stayed from Thursday noon until Saturday about 5pm. DH insisted HE wanted to go home, I wanted to get out of there so they'd stop pushing formula on me, though I knew it was too soon and I was really, really going to be hurting. Sure enough.. it was terrible. If this third baby is born by csection, I will stay as long as I can and benefit from a bed that can do all the moving/sitting up for me. It was pure he** trying to get in and out of bed that first night. I was sobbing in tears. I was only given the option to stay until Sunday though.

I've never been given the option of staying more than 72hrs.

Re: How long were you kept in the hospital after your C/S?

I stayed 4 with the first 3, and 3 with the last one. While I was ready to come home with the last I should've probably stayed put because I did end up moving around too much and paid for it. I rest more in the hospital.
