Hospital Stay

Discharge from the hospital after delivery is flexible. After vaginal delivery the length of stay is up to 48 hours. The day after a vaginal delivery, a patient may go home if she feels good and wishes to leave.

After a Cesarean Section the usual stay is 3-4 days.

Discharge time is about 12:00 noon, and there is a daily 10:30 a.m. class most new mothers (and fathers if they can) take on the morning of discharge.
