Anyone want to share their L&D experiences with McKay Dee in Utah? I'm trying to find information on statistics or ratings online but I'm not having much luck. I'm due on the 27th but I just don't know if I'll make it and I'm having FTM jitters. (What's their C section %, natural births, how they deal with 'crunchy' moms, etc)

I went to their ER earlier on in my pregnancy with a kidney infection and they were really fast at pumping me full of pain meds before getting a sample of anything...

I delivered there 2.5 yrs ago a few months after moving to the area. At the time I found some % stats online, but I don't have them bookmarked to pull up now. I remember it being fairly average for the country.

It was my first birth and I was a bit naive. When I filled out my birth plan when I went for a tour, they gave me options such as walking monitors that I assumed were an option, since they were on the birth plan. When I was actually there delivering walking monitors were not an option, and I had to be in bed getting monitored for at lest 15 minutes of every hour. During one of my hours it had to be longer since they didn't get a consistent reading. I think it was usually about 20 minutes. I was looking forward to getting into the shower for a little relief (since there were no tubs), but the particular shower I had in my birthing room had the most pathetic stream of water.

Overall the nurses were super nice and helpful, but made a lot of comments that they aren't used to having people up and walking instead of in bed on a drip Feel free to ask any questions. Hope this helps and good luck!

In '02 I had a natural birth there. They were very supportive of my doula being there, too.
But I don't think they were really used to natural births, because I looked up at one point to see a BUNCH of people watching me!! I was in too much pain to care, though.

Ds stayed with us the whole time (roomed in, didn't leave for anything.)

I think it also really depends on your OB, as well. You want one with a supportive attitude. (My OB gave birth a few months before I did, so she was totally cool.)
