Hello! I am trying to decide if I should deliver my first baby at the Holy Name Hospital in Teaneck or at the Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen. If you delivered at those places it would be great if you could give me feedback on the hospital and the nurses. Thank you!

I didn't deliver at Holy Name but my good friend had her first there. As far as hospital birth experiences, she says she had as good an experience as could be expected. She delivered her second at home.

http://romancathanachronism.typepad....rsey-hosp.html has a bunch of different statistics which might be useful in deciding.

Have you thought about homebirth?
