I had an elective c-section at 38+1. My son had respiratory distress. The outcome, well... You can see it in my signature.
This time around I will need another c-s for medical reasons, whenever labor starts, or by 39w if it hasn't started. Even that scares me.
All I can recomend you is: go to the hospital further away, if it is better prepared for small babies. If you can't go over 36w that's fine, but have the best structure possible, even if it means being further from home.
I am moving from my country, away from my familly, at 18w, so I'll be close to a Nicu 4.
You have the "heads up" I never did.... Make the most of it!
