When a patient has a caesarian section scheduled at a hospital, it is common practice for the hospital to inform you what time to be at the hospital for surgery.
If your surgery is scheduled for very early in the morning, the hospital will most likely request you to arrive around two hours before your surgery. This way you can get checked in, get settled in your room and receive your IV and any necessary medications that may be needed for surgery.
Most hospitals do not require a patient to come the night before a scheduled caesarian. Patients who receive a c-section are usually allowed to spend one extra night in the hospital, after the birth. This is up to the patient's insurance, but it is common practice.
