How far are you from the nearest hospital?
About 7-8 minutes from the closest and about 20-30 from the one tied to my insurance. My insurance will cover any emergency at another hospital though
What would be the farthest/longest transfer you'd be comfortable with?
Probably 20 minutes
Has your midwife (if you're planning assisted) ever handled an emergency transfer?
Yes, their transfer rate is about 3%. The vast majority (98%) are non-emergencies and generally it is because the mom is asking for pain meds, is too tired, etc. They have had a few emergencies though
