  • We did with our first because we had never been to the hospital. It was interesting, and put my mind at easy knowing where I would be having our baby and staying. Plus knowing all the security that was in place was nice to know too...

  • I didn't for my first, but I did for my 2nd, even though I knew what to expect it was a good refresher and the nurses were really nice. The tour was short and simple, but explained what the room would be like, what to do if you needed anything, where the babies would be when they weren't in the room with you (forgot what the room is called), visitor hours, and answered many questions, it was great and I'd recommend it.

  • We took a tour with the pregnancy classes.

  • Yes! ~~Well, even better: I had each prenatal in the room I would be delivering in, with only those who would be attending my birth (no strangers or nurses).

    So that was really great!
    I loved that I could get so familiar and comfortable and at-home there. This was so important for a first & second-time mom to be!!

  • nope i never went on a tour of the hospital before i went into labor because i had a few relatives deliver at the same hospital so i already knew what it was like

  • Our hospital tour was part of our Lamaze classes that were held at the same hospital where we'll be delivering. I thought it was pretty neat to see where it's all going to happen.
