Birth centre or delivery suite

I've been diagnosed with gestational diabetes but it has been really well managed with diet. I've been offered the option to use the midwife led birth centre or consultant led delivery suite. I'll be honest, this has caught me out as after the GD diagnosis I just expected I'd be up on the delivery suite... I now can't decide, I guess if I'm going to want an epidural I should just go to delivery suite to start with but I'm just not sure! Any thoughts?

Are the co-located or is the MLU off-site? That would make the decision for me.

They're on the same site, so could probably start at MLU and move if needed to I guess?

Delivery suite consultant led is far busier I would use the other birth place
