  • each hospital has it's own policy but my hospital you have the baby on whatever day, your have another full day in the hospital, and the day after you get discharged. And that's extended by one day if you have a c-section. But all this is assuming everything goes just fine with the baby.

  • I have been induced twice. With my daughter I had her at 6:30 in the morning and was realesed at 4:30 that afternoon. I did have a midwife though, if I had an OBGYN I would have not been realesed till at least 6:30 the next morning. The standard is 24 hours after the baby is born. I hope all goes well!

  • It depends on how the delivery goes and the hospital policy.
    If you have an uncomplicated vaginal delivery you will be released 48 hours after giving birth (some hospitals will allow you to go home 24 hours if your doctor sign a permission form). If you have a C-section you will go home 96 hours after giving birh (and in most cases you will not be able to go home earlier).
