We aim to support mothers and their new babies to return home as soon as possible. The length of time you will need to stay at the unit is dependent on your labour and childbirth experience.
In the event of an uncomplicated delivery we will aim to get you home between 3 and 12 hours after you have given birth. You care will be continued by the community midwife within your own home the very next day.
You can expect to go home between 24 and 48 hours after your section if all is well. We aim to discharge mothers by late morning or early afternoon in most cases.
