I guess it depends on how early in the labour you plan to go to hospital. I preferred to labour on my own at home until my contractions were 2ish mins apart, and then make the trip in to hospital and give birth within the hour. By this stage, yes, you would probably be bleeding and may have waters leak, etc. Some poeple prefer to rush in to hospital at the first sign of labour. If you (and your hospital) are happy for you to go there very early in the labour, then a taxi would probably suffice. If you wait a little longer and prefer to labour at home, you would need to be calling an ambulance.
You can call different taxi companies and find out if they have policies on transporting a woman in labor. That way you will know who to call when the time comes.
