If you have so much time (6 weeks), you can do one of three things:

1.- buy a FL-D filter that will convert Fluorescent light temperature to
almost daylight.
2.- buy or rent a color meter, visit one of the birthing rooms and measure
the light temperature. A cheap Gossen Sixtycolor should do the trick (on
eBay they are about 50 bucks), or you can rent one for about 20 dollars per
day from your local pro shop
3.- use B/W film with a light yellow filter. Renders flesh tones nicer on
current film emulsions.
