Quoting Mom2Just1:

she is not near any others and the only one remotely close is out of state so her insurance wouldnt cover it

Tell her to return to the hospital and not to leave no  matter what they say....My sisiter had that and almost lost her baby and ended up needing an emergency C-section in order to save her and the baby
