How did you get to the hospital when you gave birth?

With my first ds, we didn't have a car so I called the ambulance when my water broke. My DF was so worried I was gonna have the baby at home so he went outside and flagged down a police officer and we rode in the back of the cop car, with the sirens on, all the way to the hospital lol.

My DF wasn't home when my water broke with ds2. I called him and left a voicemail. I drove myself to the hospital at 4 am in the morning. I parked on the wrong level, got out and locked my keys in the car by accident. I walked down 3 flights of stairs and went around the building to the emergency room entrance. I was in so much pain from the contractions at the point.

I hope I have a fairytale ride to the hospital next time, if I have another kid.

The first time, I was single and had no car so my grandmom drive me.

Second kid, I had a car but there was a blizzard and we were snowed in so the chief of police had to drive me in a truck to meet the ambulance on a less snowy highway. Before they figured out what to do, I was in labor with about 10 very nervous men in my house who didn't want to have to deliver my baby lol.

My husband drove me. We just had to wait for the neighbor to come stay with our oldest while he was sleeping.
