I don't know if the Ellsworth Hospital is close enough (Maine Coast Memorial) to you, but I delivered my daughter there 2.5 yrs ago. I had a natural birth and used the one room with a birthing tub. I really liked their practice, and saw the midwives at Maine Coast Womens care. The only thing I didn't love was that each prenatal appointment was with a different midwife, so I didn't really get to know anyone well. I'm homebirthing this time, but not because my experience in Ellsworth was bad. I didn't to have an IV, just had intermitten monitoring, could eat, and basically do what I want I want, much better than my experience in Bangor in 07.
