When You Go Into Labor
If you go into spontaneous labor, call your obstetrician. There is no need to call the hospital. Just come to the labor & delivery floor per your doctor's instructions.
If you have a planned induction or C-section, you will receive specific instructions from your physician and the hospital on what to do on the day of your delivery.
