I live about 15 minutes away from the hospital, and work about the same distance away, just in the opposite direction. I think we'll be okay!

I'm about 25-30 minutes depending on traffic, I'm not afraid we won't make it in time I have a feeling I'll be in labor for a long time based on my last labor/delivery.

15 minutes. I will have a c-section but if I did happen to go into labor I wouldn't worry.

We are planning a homebirth so no worries, but it was a concern with my hospital births because I was 1 hr and 15 min from the hospital, and I delivered my 3rd at home because going to the hospital wasn't an option I was too far along in the labor and the hospital was too far away!

With my oldest it was about 20 mins. My 2nd and 5th were about an hour away. With my 2nd had I not left when i did I would have had her on the side of the highway. My 4th about 10 mins. My 3rd and 6th about 5 min. I only worried with the two that were an hour away.
