They usually keep you 48 hours for vaginal. Not sure about the c section. One thing I wasn't prepared for: I had my son at 2 in the morning on a Saturday. So they didn't release me until Tuesday morning :/.

My hospital keeps mamas 48 hrs after baby is born. I had my baby on Monday afternoon and stayed in the hospital til Wednesday afternoon. It will depend on the hospital and drs but normally its 48 hrs for vaginal and 72 hrs for c/s. Good luck!

I was there from Friday morning to Monday afternoon. My c section was late Friday night. My hospital won't release patients on Sundays and they don't do some procedures on Sundays. this time around my c section will be Thursday and I will be released Monday. I know they will keep me there Sunday because it will be Easter

That's strange. I went home this year on Easter Sunday.

Quoting Firenygirl180:
