Hello! I am new to the area and am pregnant! I was wondering if any moms here had any opinions/experiences at the local hospitals, for child birth. Thanks!

I used Dupont with my first and Parkview with my second. Both were good hospitals but I liked Dupont better (and you can get food anytime you want!)

 I LOVED Dupont sooo much!!! The nurses were great, and the food was too! I got a huge chocolate chip cookie at 3 am! AND they let me eat the morning before giving birth and within minutes of having my son I was on the phone getting a cheeseburger! (I had to be induced). Good luck it's such an exciting time!!!

I had my daughter at St. Joe and my son at Parkveiw North. St. Joe was horrilbe, Parkveiw was alot better, also I have heard good things about Luthern. But Parkveiw really made me feel comfortable, and my 19 month old daughter got  to meet her little brother the same day he was born!giving mom gift

 At Parkveiw I was able to get food when ever also. I wanted to go to Dupont but my OB is the head Ob at Parkveiw and it was always there and the odds for her to deliver Ben there would be better.

i had dd at dupont and ds1 at parkview i loved both places. food whenever you wanted and great care! also if you have a baby that needs to go to the nicu parkview north is EXCELENT!!!!! not saying that its a good thing that baby might have to go to the nicu but the nurses are amazing and i just can't say enough good things about them.

 I had 5 kids at Parkview :) One downtown and 4 at the north place. I LOVED ALL the care I got! Everyone was pleasant and helpful :) And the NICU ABSOLUTELY ROCKS (We had a 5 weeks stay with one child and a 1 week stay with another)

I had my oldest dd at st. joe and my youngest at lutheran hospital. I loved both places. My oldest dd had to stay in NICU for a month and I loved the nurses who took care of her.
