Good morning Jamie!

I am considering this a hand holding question, since we've already discussed my birth and I feel really comfortable with the information I was given. . . but things do change (including deciding not to use a doula).

I have the opportunity to go away for 5 days, starting this Thursday, to my inlaws Island house. It is only approx. 3 hours away, but it includes a ferry ride.

I do have a practical concern of going into labor during the middle of the night and not being able to get off island. I don't know the vbac policies of the hospital.

The tricky question I have issince I really don't want to know when I'm going into labor) will I go into labor during these 5 days? Or maybe a better way to ask is: will going on this mini-vacation compromise my labor and birth plans?

thanks friend!

thanks for such a fast reply. Looking forward to getting away. It's a peaceful place for me.

(no idea where the green frowny face came from in the first post - not feeling frowny)

enjoy your day.
