I'm trying to figure out our contact list for when I go into labor for #3, and wondering if anyone knows if you can bring your kids to L&D? My parents live 1-2 hours away depending on traffic and in the super marginal case that I can't get any local friends to watch the kids do you think I can bring them with us and just set them up with a movie until my parents can come pick them up? Or would it be better to just have DH drop me at the hospital and wait at home / in the parking lot with them?

Has anyone done this? It sounds insane but I'm nervous that now all my parent friends have their own babies and toddlers and its not quite as easy for people to drop everything as it was a few years ago!

I'm really hoping to just be induced so I can actually have a real plan as this causes me anxiety!
