Preparing to go Home

Discharge time is approximately 11 a.m. Women who deliver vaginally typically stay one to two days after giving birth. Women who deliver by cesarean section usually stay three to four days, barring any complications.

Before you and your baby are discharged, your nurse will review educational handouts with you, including a guide for when to call the doctor, instructions for follow-up visits, and other helpful information on caring for your baby.

You must be officially discharged by your doctor or midwife, and your baby must be discharged by the pediatrician before you can go home. Once you are discharged, we provide a wagon to help you transport your belongings to your car. One of our hospital volunteers will escort you to your car in a wheelchair. Families must have an infant car seat properly installed before leaving with their baby.
