Does anyone have experience giving birth at Lutheran General? My sister in law is going there.

I delivered there many years ago. It was ok. I kept my babies in my room. The lactation consultants were not very good, but I had been attending LLL meetings since early pregnancy and the girls were my help.

I beleive they have opened the new addition for births. That should be nice.

Not for a birth, but my ds had surgery there last year. It is a fantastic hospital. One of the best in Northern IL.

Mom to two beautiful boys, now in school to be a therapist and help other women with PPD.

My dr. who attended my homebirths sent us there for both pediatric cardiology and pediatric endocrinology. Everyone there was wonderful and supportive (or at least not unsupportive) of our homebirth. It is indeed one of the best in the Chicago area if you have a medical issue. Not sure how they handle normal, healthy births.
