Yeah, it was like this for me. There's actually two birthing hospitals within 5 miles of my house and my doctor's office, but I had to drive 30 minutes away to my doctor's hospital. Not as much of a drive as you, though.
I do have to say I didn't mind it, because it was like the last car ride my SO and I would ever be taking by ourselves, so it was nice to chat, listen to music, and soak it up, you know?

Yeah lol definitely :) im a little worried about the drive. Im sure ill have plenty of time to get to the hospital but theres always that percent of women who go into labor and have their baby super quickly.

Yup, that is how ALL doctors are

They cannot just walk into a hospital and deliver there. They have to belong to a certain hospital to get priveliges there

There are 6 or 7 hospitals close to me, but my doc can only deliver at one

Makes sense. My doctor with my last pregnancy had a group of hospitals she belonged to so i could go to one of 3 different ones.

Before my doctor was changed I was seeing an ob within 5 miles of my house and supposed to deliver at a hospital right down from her office. But now that my doctor has changed I have to go about 45 minutes to doctors appointments every two weeks and he only delivers at a hospital almost an hour away, there are four other hospitals that are way closer but he only delivers at the one farthest away. I think I'm gonna be having this baby in the car....lol
