  • Depends on how far the other hospital is. All my hospitals were anywhere from 5 minutes to 20 minutes from where I lived. It takes hours to have a child. As long as you leave the home when the contractions are 5 minutes apart you should be fine.

  • wow, your hospital is close. i live about 5 miles from my birth center, and it will take me 15 minutes. i wouldn't switch for that reason.
