What should I know if I go into labor and have the baby before I get to the hospital?

Be prepaired: First time moms usually spend 10-12 hrs in labor so this should not be an issue for most.It's not like on tv. It will wake you from sleep. After the 1st, you become aware & should go in when you know its real. If you do deliver outside the hospital baby must be dried off completely & kept warm. The cord can be tied off a few inches from the body & cut with a clean knife or scissors. ...Read more
