There are many hospitals in Louiville, KY. But I am wondering if anyone has any experience with L&D at any of them.

I have only been to Baptist East L&D and it was not a great experience for me. I am looking for a back up hospital for my up coming birth.

I don't even know who to call to find out c/s rates and such (and all the webe sites I have looked to did not include Louisville).

Anyone have any information they can share?

If I were transferring from home, I would go to Norton Downtown or UofL in Louisville or Clark Memorial over the bridge in IN. I was an HBAC transfer and my midwife's first choice was UofL and next Norton Downtown. Because we knew one of the doctors at Norton we went there. I wasn't treated poorly, but the doc badmouthed my midwife pretty heavy undeservedly. He didn't badmouth me for attempting homebirth. I'm not sure if you UC or have a midwife. If you have a midwife, I'd go with her choice. If you UC, I might stick with UofL. I think you might be treated better there. I'd just be quiet as possible about it I guess.

Thank you. I do normally UC, but ended up with an induction last baby due to pre-e, so I just went with my back up OB's suggestion, that she was doing rounds at at the time.

It was my only hospital birth so, I had no idea that I would actually have to use a hospital, thus I never really looked into the back up much. That is changing this time around, to be sure.

I am considering changing my current back up OB (my present OB only delivers at Norton Downtown) so I am looking into hospitals before I choose another one.

I am "planning" another UC, but preparing for a the JIC.

I have heard many women recommend the University OB practice as being open minded folks. Dr. Paige Walker delivers at UofL and I have heard women recommend her as well.

Hope you get to UC, will pray for you.
