i am hoping to have a hospital birth so do i ring the hospital first? then would i ring the midwife if its all going too quickly and i dont think im going to make it? or an ambulance?or the hospital who will get an ambulance?
You ring the hospital first. You will talk to a midwife who will chat to you about symptoms and then you can decide whether it's time to go in. It's unlikely to go too quickly if it's your first time. Very unlikely! But if you are feeling the urge to push on the kitchen floor then you can phone an ambulance.
Ah! I can see why you're concerned. It's always good to phone the hospital anyway, as they like to know that you're coming. I know about a couple of emergency births in real life and the midwives have stayed on the phone with the father to guide him as the ambulance is on its way.
