SweetPea - It'd be a 25-30 min walk and no, the father doesn't know yet.

With both mine I felt well enough to drive when we left the house but within 5 min would have been a danger in the road.

With my first I tore so couldn't sit very easily with my second I probably could have managed it but if I had to do an emergency stop or something would have struggled. I had straightforward birth too.

If I was in your situation I'd ring a taxi you've know idea how your labour will go and could be a danger to everyone else in the road never mind yourself.

Hope you find a ride, could you contact your hospital. .I know some here in the U.K. Who have volunteer drivers who take people to appointments would they have a similar scheme?

I probably could've done but I was in hospital for a week as Lucas was in NICU due to complications, so I had time to rest and heal. A day after giving birth I couldn't stand without getting ill (I ended up needing a blood transfusion a few days after while we were still in hospital).
As with others though my hospital made sure I had someone to drive before discharging me.

Well that doesn't sound so bad! I think that I personally could have done that. But sounds like it may not be the same for other ladies

I've only had 2 c section and yes i was in pain but if I HAD to I could have driven. I definitely wouldn't want to but in an emergency I could have made myself. I doubt I would be driving normal speed or able to turn to check if making a lane change. Do they have taxis with baby seats you can pre book?

What about a bus/train? How does your mum get about in your area if she doesn't drive.

She walks or takes the bus. Or gets me to drive her places, if I'm free. Plus, she's retired, so she doesn't need to go out too much.
