Getting home after having your baby may seem the ideal once baby has made an appearance, but hang on, there are some benefits to staying in hospital, here are 5 reasons to enjoy your time in hospital.

1. On call support

Day or night, when you’re baby cries, or needs something, you have support all the time in staff on duty. That can make a huge difference when you’re in the early days of getting to know your baby’s needs.

2. The bed is your own

It may not be your own bed but getting the whole bed to yourself is something to enjoy while you can.

3. Room service

Your meals are bought to your bedside, now that’s something to lap up as it may not happen again for a while. And remember how good that tea and toast tasted after you gave birth? Heaven.

4. A peaceful shower

You can enjoy a leisurely shower while a member of staff keeps an eye on your baby and not have the stress of a toddler jumping in your bath with you or your partner shouting up for you to hurry as the baby is crying…enjoy.

5. No chores

Enjoy not having to do any chores, no cleaning, washing up, laundry. There will be plenty when you get back home, so make the most of the break while you can.
