Sounds like a good decision. Our nearest hospital is an hour away, actually there are about 5 hospitals an hour away (in different directions). The drive to the hospital in labor was quite miserable and the drive back with the newborn was even more so. Not looking forward to that part again this time, but we're not comfortable doing a homebirth as if we had to transfer it would be an ambulance + helicopter to get to hospital. I hope your appt with the new OB goes well.
Yikes! You must be in the middle of nowhere. What do most pregnant women do in your area?
