My biggest fear was going into labor at home, and not making it to the hospital in time. Sounds silly in retrospect. But at the time, that fear was very real for me!
When I was 8 months pregnant, we moved from one city to another. Moving was a tough decision, but was something we needed to do to get off to a good start as a new family. So, we moved to be closer to my work, family and friends.
The only problem was, I had been seeing my doctor for my entire pregnancy and then some. I was really fearful of switching doctors and hospitals that late in the game. My doctor knew me. He knew me well! He knew exactly what I wanted for my labor experience, he knew all the bumps and hiccups we had along the way. He knew my personality and knew what I needed to hear to feel secure. And I trusted him. I trusted he would make decisions that were based on what I wanted, but would be best for the situation. He was the perfect balance.
