In brief: 2-4 days
If you have a vaginal delivery you can stay up to 2 days, but many women choose to go home the day after delivery.
For a c-section you can stay in the hospital up to 4 days after delivery. You may be able go home earlier, on the second or third day, if you are doing well after your surgery. We like to give you enough time in the hospital to make sure mom and baby are healthy.
