Also, I was wondering if anyone could fill me in on the general "birth climate" around here. My children were born while we were living in NJ, and in thinking about planning for more, I'd like to have some idea of what to expect. Home birth, midwives, baby-friendly hospitals, etc.
I'm up in Newark and can second what greenbean said, the birth climate in Delaware definitely stinks. I had a homebirth about six months ago and between then and now my wonderful midwife moved to the west coast at least partially because this area is so awful for midwives. We felt so very lucky to be able to have the homebirth we wanted with a great midwife. I just don't know what I would do if I were pregnant right now. Wish I had better news to share...
