Did you interview different caretakers (ob, midwives) and tour different places before choosing a place to have your baby?
No. I found out extremely late in my pregnancy and went with the dr they suggested.
no i went to my ob office because i like them and why would i switch my ob because i'm pregnant? its part of there job hahaha
With my first, I chose the hospital where my midwife delivered. I did tour it beforehand, and it was really nice, so I went with it. Went back there with my second. With my third, we have moved to another state. I had an OB, toured the hospital she was with, and wasn't impressed (labor/delivery rooms, and then recovery rooms). Then, I asked her about having my tubes tied and she said she couldn't do that because the hospital is a Catholic hospital. So, I started looking at other hospitals and other OBs (hard to find midwives here). Anyway, found one, she was/is awesome, toured the hospital, and it was awesome, so that's what I did.
Nope I went wit h my original gyno and stuck with the hospital closest by
No. I chose a practice based off recommendations from friends, and they only delivered at 2 hospitals when I was pregnant with my first. The hospital I delivered at I chose because it was the only one of the two that had a NICU in case we needed it.
I used the same practice with my second and by then they stopped delivering at the other hospital, so dd2 was born at the same hospital as dd1.
