Piedmont can be a tricky group. A few of the doctors are wonderful. A few are not-so-great. And with a large group it is a toss-up as to who you get in labor.
GHS does have their new family-centered maternity care which is promising.
Most of my doula clients do have natural births there. But they are not the most comfortable births I've witnessed. I have yet to have a client give birth in any position other than lying on her back or side in the bed.
Since you're asking, I'll throw out that the most natural birth friendly hospital is Greer Memorial. Deep labor tubs, telemetry units if you need continuous monitoring (they can be submerged underwater), LDRP rooms, and a super nursing team. There is an amazing family practice physician who catches babies there--Keith Stafford (www.cfmofgreer.com). With him, I've had clients deliver standing up, squatting in the bathroom floor, hands/knees, you name it. Delayed cord clamping is a norm. Immediate skin-to-skin is expected. And there is no newborn nursery.
I've been a doula for five years and seen many doctors in action. Stafford and Greer are my top picks. And I won't do births at St. Francis anymore. Not personally comfortable with how I've seen mamas and babies handled.
Wherever you birth, you can have a natural birth with good support and knowledge. I agree that staying home as long as you're comfortable is a good plan.
My two cents! Hope that helps! Are you using Mary or Kristin for Bradley? They are both so incredible!!
