Oh and if you go with Einstein, the rooms are private and from what the website says very nice! 
Kathy Hindle with midwifery traditions delivers at Montgomery hospital.  I called them a few days ago to verify that.  Montgomery doesn't have any tubs from what I hear though.  The receptionist at Midwifery traditions said that Montgomery allows birthing pools to be brought in.  But I have heard conflicting information from other midwifes about that though.  The Valley Birthplace told me that they deliver at Montgomery hospital as well. Montgomery Hospital is going...
does anyone know if Valley Birthplace accepts medicaid?  I want to have a water birth for my third baby, but I am having a TON of problems figuring out how to do that because of insurance issues :(
