I'm not really worried about a transfer at all, no reason to think I will need to, but want to have a plan just in case.
I am pretty sure we'll have someone here to hang out with the kids (7 and 4) as well as the midwife and DH.
But what's the best plan for an emergency transfer? Haul the kids along? Leave them here (we're 45 minutes away from the hospital)?
I know I won't be able to give my friend any idea of how long we might need her to stay and my boys are pretty comfortable with her, but will likely be stressed if they know something is wrong. My friend doesn't have young kids and works very part time, so I think she'd be willing and happy to help.
The one good thing about bringing them with us is my brother lives right by the hospital, so DH and kids could crash at his place if need be and be only 5 minutes from the hospital instead of 45 minutes away up at our house.
Thoughts? Other alternate plans I haven't thought of?
