Abstract: The impact of postpartum length of stay (PLOS) has been widely reported. Different mothers often have different lengths of stay after child delivery. In order to determine the optimum PLOS, it becomes necessary to deliberate on the factors associated with it. An investigation was conducted on 150 women who delivered at War Memorial Hospital in Navrongo, Ghana. Analysis of the data using generalized Poisson log-linear model identified birth by cesarean section (P-value < 0.0001) and good newborns’ condition (P-value < 0.0001) as significant factors that explain the variation in PLOS at the hospital
