Normal thought process:
Got a twinge.
I'll call an ambulance.
Had a strange experience recently. Someone I know very well was pregnant. Overdue even. She's young, never been pregnant before, except for the last nine months, so didn't really know what to expect.
She did the strangest thing. She asked her family, several of whom have been through the same thing over the past few years for help, advice, guidance, tips. Anything that may assist her in this weird new world.
Then, finally, what seemed like 2 months late, she went into labour. She wasn't sure it was labour, so she called her family again. They said it sounded very much like she was in labour. So she called the hospital. They said she should come in. It was time.
Except that she has no car.
So she did something even stranger. In the middle of the night, she phoned her nearest relative and asked for a ride to the hospital. She didn't call an ambulance! Can you believe it? What sort of odd behaviour is that?
Said relative took her and remarkably calm hubby to hospital, dropped them off, and waited for news.
Several hours later, still in the middle of the night, the news arrived. As had the baby. And all was well.
And not a maternataxi ambulance in sight!
PS - Congratulations!
