  • Most of them I went home the next day, last time I had surgery so I stayed an extra day.

  • 2 days, 2 vaginal, 1 c-section. as long as you walk and shower within 24 hrs, they prepare you for discharge. good luck!!!

  • I had a c-section and I had her on a Wednesday at 3:31 pm and was home by noon on saturday. At my hospital they make you stay for at least 3 days after a c-section but most have to stay 4 days.
