Ive had three kids, one with a midwife and two unassisted at home. I am now going to be a surrogate and the family has changed their minds about a midwife...they are insisting on an OB & hospital setting for everything. I have no idea how to shop for an OB/hospital! I need a doc who will be open to just let me birth without too much fuss, preferably without monitors, let me have control to walk around/change positions, etc. I live in Andover near Willimantic, but Im not too concerned about getting to the hospital on time since we seem to be fairly central to everything. Please, any hospital suggestions would be great...also, will they let me interview them before hand?

Manchester Memorial Hospital has a pretty good reputation for being natural birth friendly.  For a practice, check out Manchester OB/GYN Associates.  They have OBs as well as CNMs on staff, both attend births. 
Good luck in your search and best wishes for an easy birth!
