I am worried about preparing my kids and/or hubby for an unexpected birth out of hospital. My last was a prem at 36wks. Bub No. 4 tried to come at 34wks (4-5 cm dilated) but we caught it early. To make things worse, the last 3 labours have been under 45mins in total from the 1st contraction- (one was 10 min.s) and I live 40mins from closest hospital. I want to know what to do if I accidentally deliver at home or in the car. How can I prepare the family just in case? Where is the best place to give birth- an empty bath? Do I need to cut the cord? How? (Ambulances take 30 mins to get here) I just want a back up plan.
