Not sure what to do about Noah when I go into labour. The options are my mum, who works round the corner, so during office hours will be able to come stright over to get him, but on the minus side she isnt always answering her phone, and being the manager she often has meetings and commitments etc. She drives and lives about 45 mins away, but will come and pick Noah up imediatly, if and Isay if, another concern is that she drinks, not like an alcoholic but within a couple of hours of being home from work she has had a couple of glasses of wine and cant drive, but I wonder if I called her at the time she might not want to let me down, and say its fine to get him even if she has had a little to much, which I do NOT want, but I guess I would never know if she had. Its not like I can give her a set date for this either, so she would have to not drink in the evening for about a month, just waiting. The other option is OH's mum, again a 45min journey away, she doesnt drive but her partner does, they are normally very easy to get hold of and dont drink, but he is a very nervous driver, and even when they did child care for me, he would never take noah out in the car with him, and they have only driven to ours in Norwich once, cause he doesnt like driving to the city, or driving at night, or in bad weather etc. So I dont know how reliable either will be, although we could drop Noah off at either ourselves, both mums live in the oposite directions from each other and the hospital, so it would mean 45 mins to one, 45 mins back home, then 45 mins drive to hospital, whilst Im in labour!!! Or I send OH on his own to drop Noah off, but then I dont want to be on my own in case something happens, or things progress quickly. Anyone else have this problem with your kids when having another baby? what did you do? I wish their was some sort of emergency on call baby sitting service for these cases!
