Driving To The Hospital On Shabbat

The Daily Halacha Moment - Driving To The Hospital On Shabbat

״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)

“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


Who can drive an expecting woman to the hospital on Shabbat?


If possible, a woman who is giving birth should use a non-Jewish driver to drive her to the hospital. [1] However, if having to find a non-Jewish driver will stall her from getting to the hospital, then even a Jew may and should drive her there. [2]

Adapted from R' Yonatan Nacsons "Laws Of Shabbat"


[1]. See in Pri Megadim, E.A. 330:2 and in Shulchan Shlomo 330:1 who state that it is better to use a non-Jew when possible.

[2]. Halichot Olam, vol. 4, p. 142.
