and i can not beleive it!!! it really is a birth center within a hospital....everything everywhere was about breastfeeding......the rooms look like hotels, jacuzzi tubs in every room with big beds for mom, non hospital looking bed for baby and a bed for dad and siblings!! they even allow you to co-sleep with your newborn if you choose.....and there were NO babies in the nursery and she said that no one ever uses it! no mandatory ivs, you can eat and drink in labor...and the gift bag had NO formula..instead a gorgeous bathrobe and a water bottle so breastfeeding moms can stay hydrated...wow!! i am soo excited....dh is excited by the 3 free meals for dad!!..what a change from where ds was born!!

That sounds so nice!
I bet you must feel so relaxed knowing what a great place you'll get to birth at. I feel that way, sucha reliefe not to have to worry about policies, etc.

Wow! I am so jealous. Our birth will have to be at a hospital because we are hoping for a VBAC and it is very, very hospital-y.

Yeah! That sounds wonderful!

I know the hospital I am going to have whirlpool tubs in the labor room. I can't wait.

I am incredibly jealous--your hospital sounds excellent---mine is not at all as nice, in fact my aunt (a pediatrician) actually recommended that I just hold my breath while I'm there and check myself out early...not exactly my dream delivery, but it's the only place my doc delivers and he's so non-invasive...
