Would You

Drive to a hospital and/or doctor that's 30 miles away just because you liked the hospital last time? Or would you just try to find a closer one and settle for the closer hospital? I'm planing on another c-section so it's more about preference then anything else.

  • I chose to drive an hour and a half to go to the hospital.

  • I would drive, with my last 3 I didn't have a choice and had to drive that far so it wouldn't be a big deal.

  • I'm moving soon and where I am moving to there are only small hospitals. I'm high risk so delivering at a small town hospital doesn't seem very safe. I tend to have small babies also so I want to be near a good NICU just in case. I will be driving 1 hour for Dr. appointments and to deliver.

  • I would drive! The one I've chosen is actually about 20 minutes away. 30 if traffic's bad. My momma gave birth to both of us in a hospital that was 45 minutes from her home. I say it's worth it if you know you like the hospital. Especially if it's a planned c-section.

  • I would go with the one you are comfortable with! If it means driving a bit do it!! Good Luck!
