    Can I call Ambulance when labour pain starts at home in Tung Chung?

    Hi All,

    I live near Tung Chung MTR. As the public hospital is very far from here, do you think I can call ambulance to take me to hospital, when I start feeling any pains?

    I worry about taking taxi;
    - first not sure if it will be convenient in the pain or not.
    - not sure if I will be able to wear seat belt or not.

    Need Advice!

    Be aware that an ambulance will take you to your *nearest* A&E - regardless of whether it has a maternity ward.

    Usually it takes a while for contractions to get going and for it to be painful. So you should have time to get in a taxi. My dr was waiting for my water to break, and once it did I still wasn't in any pain. I took a shower had breakfast, and then made my way to hospital after a couple of hrs.

    Aquarian is right, the ambulance will take to you to the closest hospital and it may not be the one of your choice.

    Good luck!
