    With my first I walked for 5-6hrs in the hospital to get labour moving then I was induced. With my second I was walking/moving for 16-18 hrs before I rocked up to the hospital.

    The mater will often suggest mums take the lift to the top floor then walk down to the bottom to help with labour.

Leave the big bag in the car until you've transferred to the ward. It means less things that you have to carry in when in labour and less things to take up room in the Birth suite.
    Thanks! I was thinking about having two bags so I didn't have to worry about taking everything into the birth suite.

    My DH just dropped me off in the drop off zone and went to find a park. A porter took me up to the birthing suite in a wheelchair, when DH walked into emergency the staff could tell by the look on his face that he was the partner of the woman just arrived in labour! They immediately directed him to the birthing suite!

    I am also having my baby at the RBWH and they do talk about this in the ante natal classes. But if you do arrive in the middle of the night (it's also in the Lavender book) they told us to just put a note on the car - have one ready to go in your bag with mobile number. When security comes around in the morning they will just call you to move your car. Also if you are in the middle of pushing the nurses will let them know and no dramas at all. Hope this helps!
