I wonder if you can help answer something for me. I am currently 31+3 weeks pregnant with twins. I have been having pains, frequent braxton hicks, one baby is low in my pelvis ( so now im waddling around like a duck lol). This has all happened the last number of days. I got asked to go into the delivery suite yesterday to make sure I wasn't going into labour ( which I thought I wasn't) but thought it was best to be checked. Everything was fine phew!! But the midwife said something to me that has me worried. She told me you don't want to be having your babies now because we have no cots in neonatal intensive care, nor is there in the north east at the moment!!! She told me a mother nearly went to Ireland because there wasn't any space.
This has me really worried as I have been told off midwives etc that there is a high chance that my babies will be born early. Does anyone know if there are private hospitals that have these kind of facilities? I just feel that I should have some sort of backup plan just to put my mind at ease, as it's going to be difficult for one baby never mind two.
Thanks in advance xx
