I'm also living in Bellingham. I haven't given birth in either lpace, but St.Joseph's (or "PeaceHealth") is technically a hospital, so I'm a bit wary of their cooperativeness, although I've heard good things, compared to other places, at least.

I, personally, am going with Birthroot, a small independent midwifery practice.
Pros: Only two midwives, both of which will attend your birth
They have blood draws, etc on site, and they are also one of the only places you can go to have a natural birth here (there's also Bellingham Birth Center, which is awesome, other midwives practice privately but can use the facility for birth, and they do have a few midwives who work out of there)
They are very new and clean, and centrally located

Cons: Only con I can think of is that they are very new, so there only a few ratings available
