Birth in Japan – Hospital Stay In Japan, the hospital stay can be anywhere from 4 to 10 days, depending on choice of hospital or birth clinic. Extended days are usually for women who delivered via C-Section or who had a birth with complications. In the case of my birth clinic, I had a 4 day stay. As with my prenatal visits, every thing that would happen throughout my hospital stay was meticulously detailed in my hospital handbook. Daily checkups for baby and me, blood tests, breastfeeding “classes”, baby care “classes”- nearly every hour was scheduled for us.
