DESTINATION: DELIVERY Driving Halfway Across the Country to Have a Baby

Sitting on the bathroom floor in the middle of the night with my vomiting 4-year-old son, I began to wonder if I was trying to do too much. When his 2-year-old brother caught the same stomach bug a couple days later — a day before we planned to drive to Omaha from Washington, D.C. — I felt my resolve weaken even more.

I want to give birth in a place that is comfortable and supportive. For me that is Omaha. But is this elaborate plan worth the effort? Is it fair to my family?
