Hi everyone, I thought I had this one figured out, but going down to single digits until my due date I'm suddenly starting to reconsider my choices... Our local hospital is a 10 minute drive away, so got pretty lucky there, but equipment and birthing options are limited, and their rates for assisted deliveries and c-sections are rather high. And then there's a shiny new birth centre about an hour away that got raving reviews all around, but I'm worried we'll never make it there on time and that I'll be too uncomfortable to travel. I had initially settled for the local option, but I'd really like to keep things as natural as possible (at least in my world of wishful thinking ). For those of you who have had babies before, do you think an hour is too long to drive? And how long does everyone else have to travel to give birth? Thank you!
