If you live in a rural area you may make arrangements to deliver at a hospital with a full NICU. Lots of things to think about if there is a problem then whether or not you're keeping the baby.
And good point - if baby had something like spina bifida, or something else that has been shown to respond well to treatment inutero, I would definitely want to know so we could get where we needed to be for that treatment.
