We are brand new to the area and the hospitals that have been referred to me have the highest c-section rates in the area (Overlake, Swedish First Hill) but I'm not sure if that's because they cater to the area high-risk pregnancies? One of them was 39% and that scares the heck out of me.
I'd like private rooms with tubs and natural birth friendly nurses. I had an AMAZING hospital birth experience with my son in California and a home birth is not something that is right for me. I'd like to find the hospital before I find a midwife or OB to ensure that they deliver there. I'm only 5 weeks.
