I haven't decided which hospital I want to go to. Since we can't do our home birth, I need to get this figured out.

I have an appointment on the 9th with a local OB that delivers at the hospital that is 10 minutes from my house, but I have no experience with that hospital other than the ER from a few weeks ago.

Now, I could drive to Ann Arbor (about 30 minutes from me) and go to U of M, where I had my first son. But that would mean driving about 20 minutes to the city I'm from to see an OB because the Dr's by me don't deliver at that hospital. They move east towards Detroit, I'd be going West/South towards Ann Arbor.

Would you go with the unknown, or would you take the little extra drive (all highway) to go with what you do know, even if it's been 8 years?

My husband wants us to go to U of M. I'm a bit torn between the convenience of the other hospitals location or what I know is a good hospital (Despite how my last labor there went).
