  • No, most hospitals wont SCHEDULE on a holiday. Now if u go into labor on ur own thats a different story.

  • What is your actual due date? If it's not until after January 10th to begin with, then they prob won't do it the 1st. Due dates are often wrong, and there is too much of a chance of the baby ending up a premie.

  • hospitals don't schedule anything on a holiday. they don't have the staff for it. you would have to go into labor on your own or something would have to be wrong for you to have your baby on the 1st.
