Our bubba will be due around March/April next year. We're moving house in January. We're going public with our baby, and I know they generally make you go to the hospital closest to where you live. The hospital nearest to us now has a terrible reputation and I really really do not want to give birth there. The hospital near where we're moving is lovely. My friend used to work there and raved about their maternity ward, so would be very happy giving birth there. There's about a 20-30 minute drive between the two hospitals. My question is - will they make me go to the hospital near where I live now? If so, will I be able to change once I move house? We'd prefer to just go straight to the one in the new area, but not sure if they will let us book in there if we're not living in the area yet? Hope that makes sense. I'm going to check with the doctor when we go for our appointment next week, but I just really don't want to give birth at our local hospital, so wondering if anyone's had any experience?
