  • I was there 36 hours. I had my daughter on the 14th at 11:24 and checked out on the 15th at 3:00 pm because they wouldn't let me leave the day before. So I was there a total of 36 hours with labor and delivery and recovery.

  • I could have gone after 24 hours, but, since he had a little jaundice, they said we could stay another day just to make sure he was ok and give me extra help.

  • 24 hours, I think mainly to keep an eye on the baby. You will be ready to get the heck outta there!
