I'm considering delivering at St. Vincent in Worcester. I read past reviews about the midwives only catching during business hours, but on their website said they now provide 24/7 care. I am considering also hiring a doula, and laboring for as long as possible at home. If you have delivered at St. Vincent, can you share your experience? I'm also wondering what their labor and delivery rooms are like (do they have a regular sized tub or a birthing tub, do they allow you to stay in tub for delivery or just labor). I very much appreciate any information you can provide.

I had my last baby at St. V's. My doula stayed right by my side from start to finish. Unfortunately they don't have a tub. I was in the shower sitting on a bench and my doula held the shower head to my back whenever I needed. That did help, but I'm sure it's not the same as being completely submerged in a tub. The rooms are nice, very big smile.gif The lactation consultant was amazing and the nurses were wonderful. I had a great experience I just wish there was a tub.
