How far is the hospital from your house?

I'm considering changing doctors in order to deliver closer to home...

  • Mine was about 15 minutes, just a good thing I didn't go into labor during rush hour.

  • I am pretty much centually located near plenty of hospitals depending on which way I want to go! I choose a Doctor that delivers out of 2 different hospitals that are both with in a half hour of me! The 1 hospital is a little closer but I dont mind it too much and the other I havent heard anything bad about and havent had any bad experiences there so we are going through there! My last pregnancy I chose a hospital that I love but was about 45 mins away from me!

  • For my first three deliveries we were an hour from the hospital. For my fourth we are closer. Only 10 minutes or so which I am excited about.

  • About 10-15 minute drive. Not far at all. There's a hospital across the street but I don't like that one.
