For the NYC mamas out there:
1. How did you get to the hospital if you didn't have a car? Did you call an ambulance when you went into labor? Car service? Taxi? Gulp... subway? I live in south Brooklyn but will be delivering at NYU Langone (east 30's in Manhattan). Thoughts?
2. If you have a dog, how did you arrange for its care while you were at the hospital, without knowing when that would be or how long you might be there? Our vet's office has a kennel that we use for boarding if we go out of town, but I'm not sure how that would work in this case since we'd have no advance notice and I could easily go into labor while they're closed. We don't have a regular dog walker/sitter, and our pup is not the most easy going little guy, so I'd be worried about just asking a friend to stop in for feedings and walks. Maybe if we worked it out with a friend in advance, and set up a couple of times for the friend and our dog to spend some time together beforehand that could work??
Any advice or experiences to share would be much appreciated, thanks!
