Quoting Ashley Zernell:" I'm just trying to wrap my head around all of this..everything is so new to me, and if im having all ... [snip!] ... they are equipped enough to handle it so I would wanna have her at the childrens hospital about an hour or so away from me"
Hmm well you could always ask your dr for a referral for a consult with a perinatologist. That way you could have all of your bases covered. Our local hospital here is equipped to handle babies born after 32 weeks. I deliver at the hospital with the higher level NICU because over the years it's been easier to just let my high risk dr take over my whole pregnancy. That's not typical though. Normally high risk dr's are a special occasion type of dr. You might have a couple of appointments with them (depending on what's going on) once a month or once every couple of months.
You'd want to discuss with whichever dr you're planning on delivering with about where you want to deliver and certain drs only have privileges at certain hospitals. It would be better to have a dr who is familiar with your situation than to go to a hospital with dr's who don't know anything about your history.
There are things they can do for the baby if they think they are going to deliver. Steroid shots to speed up baby development for example, but those are only going to help if they're planning on taking the baby before or around 34-35 weeks.
