OBGYN:
From work: Less than a mile, 5 minute drive.
From home: 5 miles, 15 minute drive.

Hospital: Right across the street from my doctor’s office.

This is a major reason I picked my doctor once I found out I was pregnant – there are just too many visits to have to drive a long way – plus I don’t miss out on much work going to and from. I like that if I decide to work up until my due date, I’m right next to the hospital.

For me, the hospital is about 20 minutes away from home and an hour from work. It’s been okay for now, but I’m going to start going to the hospital twice a week until I deliver in about four weeks. That will suck.

When I lived with my parents, the nearest hospital was about 20-30min away from us. The only hospital I’d have considered using to give birth was 45 minutes away, but worth it to me because they were connected to Children’s by a tunnel and if there was any possibility of a problem, the NICU team would be at the delivery. 🙂

Now, I live about 10 minutes from the local hospital. I work there, so if I go into labor at work, I will just have to call Darling Husband and tell him to get his butt up there. 🙂

We went every month until I was 32 weeks (I think?! somewhere in there) and then every 2 weeks until 36 weeks and then every week until baby is born.

We live about 20 minutes from the hospital/OBGYN office.

I totally lucked out, because our town only has 4 practicing ob/gyns, and one hospital within 40 miles. I live 5 minutes from my doctor, and maybe 7-10 from the hospital (and that’s with 35 mph speed limits). It would suck to have to be in the surrounding towns and have to drive 30+ minutes just to see the doctor or get to the hospital. Though if you have some choice in your area, and the difference is minimal (10-15 minutes) I’d go with the hospital you like over what’s closest. Labor likely doesn’t progress so fast you can’t spare a few minutes.
