Your Postpartum Stay

The anticipated stay after a vaginal delivery is 1-2 days. Your health care team will consult with you to develop a safe discharge plan and determine when you and your baby are medically ready to leave. Being discharged from the hospital as soon as medically appropriate decreases the risks to you and your baby.

If you consent to having your baby boy circumcised, it usually occurs the day after birth and will be done by your OB/GYN.

While in the hospital, you will be asked to review a draft of your baby’s birth certificate for accuracy. Once the birth certificate is filed there is a charge by the state to make changes.

Remember to add your baby to your health insurance policy. You normally have 30 days after the date of birth to complete this process.
