Halacha is that one must use a goy and a shinuy wherever possible with a woman in labor.

What are your time constraints? Do you have time to wait around?
If time is of the essence, how do you plan to wait for a cab?
If you drive, you cannot turn off the car, park it, or close the doors after you arrive at the hospital or birthing center.

you should also have the cab number on speed dial and press with a shinui to minimize chillul shabbos

Keep in mind that although halacha recommends shinuy and using a goy - "hatzolas nifoshos" always come first so never hesitate to be michalel shabbos if that is the best option.....

of course best thing is to ask your lor before so you are well prepared.

With EInk you are changing not erasing - michika is erasing.

the ink is a tiny ball one half black and half white when there is an electrical pull it can switch from white to black creating a word and it will stay like that until another electric current changes the black to white. The ball is in the same place it is just turned....

To clarify: The tiny "ball" contains black, negatively charged ink particles and also white positively charged particles.
When a negative charge is applied under the ball the back ink is repelled to the surface. To erase the ink on the surface a positive charge must be applied which then pushes white particles to the surface to replace the black ones.

This process is literally applying ink to a surface and subsequently removing said ink. AKA Mechika... No?

Since when is the reusable ink a requirement for kesiva and mechika?
 [not to mention that theoretically this ink in the ball can be moved to a different location and can also be used to write any number of words. It contains real black particles that are attached to the screen location thereby forming a word}

If i take a roll of pennies and arrange them on the floor in Hashems name - can i them clean it up? What if i glued it to the floor? I think you are getting hung up on the word ink in EINK .

yeah, if you glue a colored substance to paper it is essentially writing.
