  • Depends how far along you are and if you have ppl to be with you at the hospital and to help you at home at the new place. All your medical stuff can be transferred, and if you & baby are not high risk for anything and you have help moving (b/c you shouldn't be doing all that yourself) then move before the baby and get all set up and ready for the arrival at the new place, then you don't have to set it all up and take it all down, just to set it all up again! Good luck with whatever you decide!

  • do it now while you're still able to move and lift a little. it's going to be a helluva lot easier now than with a baby. the sooner the better

  • That's really a personal decision. It may seem like an awfully large task to do right now but how much MORE work will it be with a new born baby?

    Are the insurance benefits that you will have in VA adaquet compared to your current benefits?

    Can your doctor recommend someone there?

    How far along are you? (some OB's won't take you after a certain gestational week but most midwives will take you until the very end so that's something to think about. For example...are you high risk and do you HAVE to have an OB? Would that even be an option for you?)

    Is there people in VA that can support you during your pregnancy and birth?

    These are things to think about before making the big move! GOOD LUCK!

  • Go ahead. it would probably be harder to move with a new born, just be prepared. look up doctors in the area, look up your insurance info, take care of the little things. Good doctors are everywhere
