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.
