|I am sorry you are not comfortable with homebirth, may I ask what your fears are, maybe they can be addressed and answered here.|

|then again, if you don't feel comfortable with homebirth, it's different. is it really the distance or are you worried about something else?|

I am facing this dilemna right now. My problem is the only hospital I can deliver at (with midwives) is over an hour away with no traffic. With traffic we are looking at 90 minutes. I did dilate to 10 cm with my daughter so I am worried this one will go quicker and I will end up delivering on the side of the road. My midwives cannot do a homebirth, there are none that can (in Ontario midwifery is highly regulated and I am VBA2C). So I don't really know what to do. I don't want a medicalized birth at all and I know going to the hospital will stress me out big time. But at the same time being so far from the hospital I can't really just stay at home until transition or I will end up delivering on the side of the road in February. And that's another issue! In February there is a big chance it will be snowing which will make the trip to the hospital a good 2 hours. I am going to have a vaginal birth come hell or high water so I will have to figure this out but still no clue. Our one possible plan is to rent a motel (nice motel, but separate entrances for privacy) room in the motel that is less than 1 km from the hospital as soon as I go into labour and go there when I'm sure its the real thing and just hang there until transition. Who knows!
