  • It depends on the person. Some people heal faster than other. If there aren't any problems, then she'll probably be out within 24 hours, maybe 2 days tops.

  • You often stay in longer for C-sections. I stayed 5 days. Insurance will usually cover 3-5 days for a C-section. I have never heard of someone with a C-section getting out within 24 hours.

  • It really depends on the person and how she is recovering afterwards. I think the standard for a c-section is to stay for a couple of days minimum.
