I ended up going to Bloomington Hospital after pre-eclampsia put an end to my homebirth plans. I have a mixed review.
The good: I told my nurse up front that I was a planned homebirth and wanted no intervention that was not medically necessary. I stated up front that I was aware of all pain med options, did not want any, and would ask if I changed my mind; the nurses never again brought up the subject. I was required to have my blood pressure constantly monitored due to the pre-e and when the numbers would go up, the nurses would give me tips about positioning to help reduce my blood pressure; never did they suggest any medical intervention. The doctor had given an order for pitocin to begin at a certain time, but when I asked for them to call the doctor in the middle of the night to question whether the pitocin could be delayed, they did call and get permission to delay pit and give another dose of Cytotec. The nurse who did most of my care stayed late from her shift because I was near birthing and she wanted to stick it out. After being told to stick to "light food and clear liquids" the nurse still didn't say anything bad about my husband bringing me curry from the Indian restaurant.
The bad: It's a hospital - no comforts of home, no real privacy, machines, etc. My doctor insisted that my water needed broken even though I was doing ok and would have preferred to wait (to be fair, this DID speed up my labor hugely and baby girl was born three hours later). There was unnecessary worry when baby girl didn't move around for several hours even though I told everyone she took really long naps in there. While the delivery nurses were great and willing to do the smallest amount of intervention necessary, the postpartum nurses just didn't get it. They kept stalling when we said we meant to leave ASAP. We were about to walk out AMA when the doctor showed up and cleared me. Postpartum nurses insisted that various tests were "mandatory" that I knew were not and I had to argue with them.
If I were to have another child, I would certainly plan a homebirth. I think the hospital is reasonably willing to do "no meds" and very little monitoring, that's not all I think of when I think of a "natural" birth. I think of it more as being able to be in a fairly natural environment, being free to make all the choices, and just having the entire situation treated as though it is a normal part of life. I don't think any hospital is likely to achieve that.
