I am planning on visiting my parents in KY in May. I will be about 36 weeks along. I am planning a homebirth, but in case I went into labour early, and we had to go to a hospital, what can you tell me about these hospitals?

Lexington:
Central Baptist
Good Sam's

Paris
Maysville

Northern KY:
St Luke's
What else is up there? I don't remember.

If anyone knows their rates, OBs, etc. nurses, attitudes toward natural childbirth, etc. I would love to know. I'd like to know where would be best if we had to go in.

Also, are there any midwives in that area NE of Lexington?
Thanks!

baby-moon.com has a page of midwives.

I don't know anything about good sam, but I delivered my second child at central baptist. It was not great then, but I've heard that things have changed since then. Just make sure you're stubborn enough to get yourself heard there.
