If you were pregnant and had a toddler at home would you move into a town of 200 people with no nieghbors close by and no hosptial in the town (nearest one is in a town 30 mins away)?

we need to move and i found a house with very affordable rent but there is no hospital nearby and the nearest nieghbor is a 5 minute drive.. we only have 1 car and he would be working in the cities (an hour away) and would have the car.. he wants the house but im leary about it.. what do you think?

  • PERSONALLY WE JUST BOUGHT OUR HOUSE IN A TOWN OF ABOUT 200, MIGHT NOT EVEN BE THAT. ANYWAY OUR CLOSEST HOSPITAL IS AN HOUR AWAY. JUST REMEMBER PRAY FIRST, THEN ASK YOURSELF "IS IT YOUR FEAR OF GOING TO A SMALL TOWN", THEN REMEMBER THAT THERE IS ALWAYS 911 IF ANYTHING HAPPENS. AND THEY CAN MAKE IT FASTER IF THERE EVER WAS AN EMERGANCY ANYWAYS. SO WHO CARES IF YOU ONLY HAV E ONE CAR. GOOD LUCK THOUGH

  • ok... what you want to do is locate the nearest hospital you can also talk to your ob and find out if he/she knows the closet hospital around...... also when and if you move into this house introduce your self to the neighbor... also check on the ambulance system and fire dept they are always there to help... 


    Good Luck

  • I agree with PP, you do need to pray about it first. It may end up being a better place to raise your children. If you do choose to move, like they said; make sure you familiarize yourself with the emergency services in the area and where the hospitals are. Also meet your neighbors, they may also lend some assistance as well. You may even travel to meet them before you decide to buy the house.
