  • with the first 2 (both NCB) 36 hours. the 3rd was born at a freestanding birth center, and I left about 8 hours after he was born. BY FAR, the 3rd was my best experience, and I recovered the quickest in the comfort of my own home.

  • i had severe pre-eclampsia and i couldn't get out of the bed even until my bp came down under 200, so with my first child i stayed in the hospital the longest at 5 days (c-section). with my second child i had a repeat and stayed 3 days, with my third i had another repeat and stayed only 2 days.

  • I was induced friday due to low fluids around the baby. Wouldnt dialate. Finally gave birth Sunday at 5:04pm. Didnt get to go home until thursday morning though bc after pushing for 3 1/2 hours, I started throwing up & running a fever and they decided to give me a c-section. :( ..So 6 days total.

  • A little over 2 days, but I hemmoraged and ran a fever after I had my son, and my son was circumcised, so it was probably a longer stay than most.
