Hello, ladies.

Has anyone given birth here? I'm planning a natural birth, but am undecided about staying home or having the baby here. (This is my first birth. I'm 40 and in good health. The baby is also fine so far, knock wood!)

I'd love to hear any experiences, whether they are yours or a friend's/family member's.

Many thanks!

I haven't given birth there, but I researched it. There were very mixed reviews. You can probably search some old threads on here. Anyway, I dont know how far u are from peekskill but the midwives, staff and nurses were AMAZINGGGGGG at Hudson Valley hospital in cortland manor. They even let you give birth IN the birth tub if you want. I'd recommend them if you're thinking of going the hospital route. I tried for a VBAC there and everyone was super supportive. My pelvis was the only thing tht didn't cooperate!
hope that helps/
