“The length of hospital stay for newborns and mothers after uncomplicated deliveries has decreased and has become commonplace worldwide. In the United States, the mean length of stay reported in 1992 was 2.6 days and declined to 1.1 days in 1995 for vaginal deliveries. This trend towards early newborn discharge has also been reported in 22 other countries.” — R Farhat – 2011 (with 34 citations), made available at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3336902/
Nice paper, but what’s nicer for me is that it holds true in my wife’s case. She (we) stayed in the hospital for a grand total of 1.5 days. Not bad.
Thanks to our Almighty God, to Dr. Marilyn Ortiga-Co who took care of her in 2010 and 2017, to nurses Cha and Sheila of Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center.
