When I go into labor, when should I call you?

Right away! I want to know when labor starts and then be updated during the progress of early labor. If you are receiving vaginal checks, I would like to be there when you reach about 5cm, or before transition or active labor begins. If you are not receiving vaginal checks, then you should plan on me being there before you are too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that I may need up to 2 hours to secure care for my children in order to be at your birth. I am available via text throughout your labor, if calling is a hassle. Just keep me informed and there shouldn’t be any problems! I always err on the side of caution and would much rather be there too early rather than too late.
