This is a VERY important website to look at when considering a hospital.

The hospital the ladies above mentioned has a 25% cesarean rate which is lower than the national average, though they have a high first-time c-section rate. 

I would call the patient advocate at the hospital and see if they will help you find a way to have your partner with you overnight.

If I gave birth in New York it would be unassisted. Seeing as they do forced medical procedures there. Scratch that, I simply wouldn't deliver there. No one could drag me to New York in my last trimester of pregnancy.

Why do you want a hospital?     Are you also considering other options, too?
