    Default Distance from your home to your ob?

    How far do you all live from your ob's consulting rooms? I'm thinking of booking an ob who is about a 25 minute drive in ordinary traffic & maybe 45 minutes if we had to drive there in peak hour. I don't mind driving at all but I was worried it might be too far to travel for my appointments later on when I am heavily pregnant & could be too much for me? How far do you all travel to your ob's rooms? And what about the hospital you will give birth at?

    With DD we were about a 40 minute drive in good traffic, 1hr+ in peak hour to her rooms (which were also at the hospital). Pretty exhausting when you're going once a week but worth it because I loved her and the hospital

    We're closer this time around but even if we weren't, I'd still travel.

    I didn't have an OB but was about 3 mins drive from the local public hospital that I was giving birth in. To be honest I didn't like leaving the house when I was heavily pregnant so I certainly wouldn't want to be travelling far in traffic for appointments. But that's just me, I'm a nervous traveller anyway.

    Home is about 45 minutes in good traffic, about an hour in peak hour. It is only 10 mins from work, so convenient for appointments

    About 10-15 depending on traffic. My Ob is directly across the road from the hospital that he delivers in as well so same distance there too.

    My first hospital was about a 20 minute drive in traffic.
