    We live about 3 hours drive from our ob/hospital, a week or 2 before bubs is due we'll go stay about 10 mins away from them.

    About 5mins to my ob- takes longer to find a car park. The hospital is even closer to home(its one block up from the Ob lol)
    I was working up until the week before I had DD, and driving 45mins each way to/from work was never an issue.

    Ummm she was about 15mins normal traffic (but in the city so plus extra time for parking/walking) then i just avoided appointments at peak times. Book your 40 weeks of appointments at the beginning of your preg so you get convenient times/days ....

    You wanna see the best ob and distance shouldn't be the 'biggest' factor, within reason of course

    A lot of people are further from their closest Hosp and have to travel for all appointments too
