There is a very real possibility my husband will miss the birth of our first child. So I have very specific questions about leading up to labor. Our family (either mothers) may not be able to come and stay prior to the baby being born.
- Who did you have drive you to the hospital? We live in a very wide spread base and are outsourced to other doctors off base because base doesn't have services (we live off base as well and about a half hour from the hospital).
- What did you do in the event of a Medical POA in the absence of your husband?
- Is there anything else I should know about giving birth alone? We are looking into a doula as well.
Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
