You will be discharged when your treating consultant feels you’re fit to go home. Normally women who undergo normal delivery are discharged the day after delivery if they have had no natal or postnatal complications. If you have undergone any surgical procedure, you will be discharged after 2-3 days after surgery provided you have not developed any intraoperative or post operative complications.

Your treating consultant will inform you regarding when to review after discharge. If you have undergone surgery , avoid wetting your bandages or using oils or indigenous substances on your surgical wounds. Review with your doctor for suture removal 10-12 days after surgery. Bring your hospital card and discharge summary when you review.

Our Obstetricians offer trial of labor as they deem fit but if they feel that a Cesarean section is required at any time due to any health condition affecting mother and baby they will counsel patients for the same.
