Do you know anything about either of these two hospitals? I had a great plan to give birth at the midwife-run Birth Center in Bryn Mawr, with Bryn Mawr hospital as the emergency backup, but now that is no longer possible. In case of any problem, Birth Center patients have to drive 20 minutes to Delaware County Memorial Hospital.
I am wondering if this would be an okay scenario, or if it would be better to just go to Bryn Mawr Hospital from the beginning, and forget about a midwife-assisted birth. I have been to BMH for other things and been happy, and I'm a little nervous upon seeing that DCMH is not only a 20 minute drive from the birth center, but has lower ratings on most sites.
If you've had any experiences at either hospital, please share. Even if you've just been to Delaware County Memorial Hospital to visit a friend, I'd like to know what you thought of it. I'm just not familiar with it at all, and unlike Bryn Mawr Hospital, they don't seem to offer tours.
