Ok so my SO works in a plant making car sub-frames. His friends Son had to go to the hospital last night and his wife called and told the boss. but the boss didnt tell him until HOURS later when they had done all their work. I am 9m pregnant and will have this baby any day. How do I know that if I call and tell them I am in LABOR they will tell him. And I dont have any wya to get to the hospital until he gets here. we only have one car. Iam so worried.
And about my SO's friend Iknow they dont Have to let him leave but they could have at lest told him his son was at the hospital. I mean its kinda important.

You need to, right now, get a plan in place to get yourself to the hospital when you need to go without having to wait for your SO to get home.
Can you take the bus? taxi? neighbor/in law/friend? Worst case, you call 911.
Is your SO not allowed to have cell phone while at work? Pre-piad phones are easy to purchase and you only pay for the minutes you use. Going forward you will need one for emergencies.

Ok, so the friend is out. So that leaves taxi or ambulance. How much does a taxi cost to get from your house to the hospital? You can call different companies around town and get a pretty good estimate. Put that amount of cash + tip in your hospital suitcase in an envelope marked "TAXI" - trust me, you will appreciate not having to think about it when the time comes!
If your SO is not allowed to have cell phone on the plant floor, can he stash one in his locker - that way you can text him or leave a VM? You can also introduce yourself to his boss and explain the situation and say something like "I know you will help out with getting him this message!"
And WTF is up with your "friend" - that sounds rather fishy - why wouldn't she want to take you to the hospital? Is there something more here?
