I am hoping to become pregnant again soon and I am considering delivering at Methodist with their midwives. I was hoping for some feedback from anyone who has delivered there.

 

I was really wanting a home birth this time around. Me and dh had been saving up but we have had some unexpected expenses so the midwife fund has been depleted. :( I will be on pregnancy medicaid and we are just really struggling between having a home birth, which we will have to pay for completely out of pocket, or going with the completely free option. I have heard both good and bad things about Methodist. I know they allow you to have a water birth, which is what I am wanting, and they have midwives on staff. I am hoping to see Darla Berry for my prenatals. Anyone have experience with her?
 

I had my first at Anderson Community and I was seeing the midwives there. I really liked them but they left the hospital when I was 38 weeks and I ended up delivering with an OB. It was awful and intervention filled and I am really hoping to avoid that this time. Methodist advertises what I am wanting but I would like some reassurance that they are truly accepting of natural birth. Any feedback would be appreciated. smile.gif

I also had my son at Community Anderson but the midwives were still on staff in June 2011 when I had him. The Community midwives have moved to St. Vincent Anderson. Why are you thinking Methodist instead of St. Vincent?

I really want a water birth and from what I have heard they don't have birthing tubs. Plus everything that happened at the end of my pregnancy really left a bad taste in my mouth.
