Just trying to get an idea what they are really like, what they "require" during labor, how pushy the nurses were on drugs, and other such things.

I have a friend that works there, I can ask her what she knows. I think a lot of it depends on your dr though.

I know, but the dr I would be using is pretty crunchy and open minded. It's more the hospital I need info on than the dr.

I had a horrible delivery there and had to deal with the NICU for 10 days when DS was born, that was a few years ago and I'm still mad at that hospital. FWIW I'm not super crunchy but I really didn't have a good experience. PM me if you have ?s.

Talk to your Dr about what you want @ your birth......depending on what it is their hands may be tied by hospital policy ~ on the flip side there are alot of nurses who want to help mom's have a natural birth, but the Dr's protocol override that as well.
