I need recommendations. I am pregnant and need a back up plan in case I risk out of the birthing center and also need recommendations on a doctor for the baby (and us, but we rarely go to any -- except for me now due to being pregnant).

It is really important for me to fins a doctor that doesn't push drugs (steroids or antibiotics) and it would be nice if they were reasonable with delayed vaccination.

The two hospitals near me are Memorial and St. Elizabeth's. I heard that memorial is far more attentive and less likely to run off with your baby for hours at a time (unlike St. Elizabeth's) -- but it is hard for me.to justify it when Memorial's c-section rate is 35% and St.EElizabeths is at 25%.

Thoughts?
