  • I recommend you don't conceive in the hospital, but you can leave immediately after.

    After delivering, however, its going to depend on how everything went. When I had my oldest, he was born at 8 pm and I was discharged at 11 am the next morning.

  • After conceiving or delivering? First of all, if you have a vaginal delivery, you won't be kept for longer than 24 hours. Your doctor may or may not ask you if you want to go home the next day. To stay 3 days, is usually a C Section. You really can leave after having the baby, as soon as you show signs of being stable, but after 4 kids I would advise you to stay. There are risks associated with afterbirth, and it is wiser to wait to see if everything is going to heal right. Good luck

  • You stay as long as the dr says because they know what they are saying more then we do. Second if you leave against medical advice insurance and medicaid wont cover it.

  • I have been out within 24 hours of ging birth to my girls and was doing the food shopping on the way home. But I bounce back quickly from almost any medical procedure and would not expect any less from myself post delivery. But then again I'm one of those weirdos that believe women have been doing this for thousands of years and up until most recently gave birth and within hours were back to their daily lives and tasks...So why should I be any different?

  • LOL, I'm hoping you mean deliverying.

    I had my son at 10:00 on Monday night and was released mid-day on Wednesday, pretty standard. While the hospital may not be as comfortable, you may end up liking the fact that there are professionals there that can take care of anything that might go wrong, with you OR baby.

    Check with your insurance as well, as they may not pay if you leave early, it's an additional risk that they don't have to cover!

  • You would have to ask the hospital that, or your doctor. Have your baby at home if your that afraid of hospitals. But you would be taking a risk if you do.Complacation can happen in home births
