Hi, I'm due shortly and I'm going to Akron City Hospital - I'm a little different situation than you, since this is a VBA3C, but I was there with my last one, and they seemed pretty friendly (ds was squashing his cord between his head and my cervix and stopping his heart beat for too long at a time, so we ended up with a c-section and a baby in ICU for a few days despite everything else being on track for a VBAC) but they have tubs and birthing balls and stuff... (you can check thier website for a brochure)
I remember when we were looking for a place last time we liked the Wadsworth-Rittman Hospital and the Medina one especially, but I think the maternity section of the Wadsworth-Rittman one is closing, and I haven't heard anything about the Medina one (haven't looked into it in a few years). The Wadsworth Women's center is pretty good for natural childbirth, they have OBs, nurses and nurse-midwives - they have priveledges at Akron City and Akron General. Though if you go there ask for Dr DeMund, she's much more open to natural childbirth than Dr Bowden. I haven't dealt with the nurse-midwives much, just because this is considered a high-risk pregnancy (been a number of issues, plus being a VBA3C).
I haven't heard of Paragon, can't say anything one way or another. Hope that helps a little.
