If I'm due for a c-section tomorrow, but am already having contractions and my water broke- if I were to go in before 12am, does that count as one night out of the four?

I would say yes, but if your water broke you have to go to hospital anyway.

it is the best to give them a call - but their web site says ''if you deliver before 11 :00 p.m., that is included as the first night.'' All the best!

Thank you! Turns out water didn't break and I didn't go to the hospital until 3, when I was worried that she wasn't moving much/that the contractions had gone away. JoannaS, you're right, if we went to the hospital before 11, then it would have counted as one night.

What they told me when I delivered last year, they counting starts of the number of nights, as from when the baby is born. Wish you all the best for your new arrival.
