I am going to have a c section tomorrow at the ULCH .
As we don t have a car, we didn t buy a car seat.
Could you recommend a taxi which provides car seats?

Thank you

If you must use a taxi one, ask for an infant carrier car seat as they'll no doubt turn up with a 9kg, forward facing one** otherwise.

Personally I wouldn't risk a hire car seat (especially with a newborn) and I'd buy a Joie Juva now. Only about £40 and a very good infant carrier.

Or Halfords sell them for £40

Which hospital are you going to?

I would just get a cheap one, we didn't have a car when DD was born but we did get a car seat. A: because she wouldn't have been let out of the hospital without on and B: we took quite a few taxis back then (it cost about the same for a taxi as on public transport) and we used it quite a bit. Admittedly the one we had attached to the pram so it was easy to transport when we got to our destination.

I would just buy one. many taxi firms wont supply one, so if you need a taxi fast it could be a long wait.

You will probably need one anyway. most baby seats last newborn-18 months. just buy a basic cheap on if not really using on motorways. If baby becomes ill for example you will want to be taking the first taxi available at night, and they are just generally handy to have. you can get one for £60

Will the hospital let you out with out a carseat? Id call ahead and double check as it is stabdard practise for most not to.

Hope all is ok and u got sorted
I collected my friend from hospital with our car seat as they were in the same position.

I've booked with this company many times and theyve always provided car seats. You just have to tell them when making the booking that you need one. Plus side is, they cover the whole of UK. Ive created an account with them so they know that i always require a baby seat when i book with them. Id definitely recommend them :
