Following discussion with you in hospital, your midwife will arrange transfer of your care to the community midwifery team and you can go home. If you have had an uncomplicated birth, the midwives will discuss with you when you can go home. For some women this could be as soon as two or three hours after the baby is born. Before you are discharged we will run through the discharge procedure and give you information and a leaflet about how you can access support and sources of help. If you are travelling home in a car, you will need to bring a baby car seat or have carry-cot restraints fitted to your vehicle.
