since i've been horribly unable to locate a midwife or birth center anywhere close to where i live (and close is essential, because we have no personal transportation) -- i'm considering checking the local hospital out to see if i'd want to deliver there.
what should i look for?
what questions should i ask the staff?
should i -- or would a hospital even allow me to -- spend as much time there as possible and get comfy there if that's where i'm going to deliver?
(with my first baby, i had gone to the hospital for my regular checkup, and they realized i was in labor, whisked me up to the L&D ward, and the first time i saw the room/nurses/all of it was when i was in there to deliver my baby.)
