When you think you’re in labor, it’s time to go to the hospital.
Every hospital has a different procedure for admission to the hospital. You may be asked to stop in the admitting department, the emrgency department, or go directly to Labor and Delivery. Ask your doctor what the protocol will be at the hospital where you will deliver.
One thing you want to take care of in advance is filling out the paperwork called preregistration.
Once admitted to the hospital, you will be given a room, then examined by the nurse.
