  • My clinic had me call first. They wanted to ensure everything was ready to roll before actually sending me to the hosiptal. They believed early labor is better where mom is most comfortable.
    I had contractions first. They broke my water at the hospital went it wasn't breaking itself.
    The clinic I'm with now will have me call also only so that they get the helicopter here in time if I go before the induction. I'm high risk though and the drive to nearest hospital that can handle my problems is 2 hrs.

  • i always call my dr first and he tells me if he wants me to go in or not.and not everybody's water breaks;they broke mine for both my kids;they'll probably break it for this one.i always went in with contractions.
