On average, a young mother would stay in hospital for at least 2-3 days.We strongly advise you to get advance confirmation that your gynecologist will be able to perform your delivery in the hospital of your choice. Cases like these happen frequently: where mothers-to-be would like to have their child delivered in a public hospital, but are instead required to give birth at the private hospital their chosen gynecologist is associated with.
