a special place in a special time


There are a number of arrangements that need to be made well in advance of your labour so that everything runs smoothly when you have to go into hospital. Make a list of relevant contact numbers, keep them by the telephone, and tell another person where they are in the event of an emergency. This list should include your midwife's contact number, or the number of the labour ward and your labour partner's daytime telephone number. Keep your hospital notes handy.
