What have been your experiences with staff being supportive or non-supportive of natural childbirth at any of these hospitals?

Well from growing up in that area I've always heard bad reviews from family and friends about Davis. Not sure how they are in the natural friendly department, but overall they had a bad rep in my community. Maybe they've improved, dk. I hear Mckay is a little better in that department. Personally I have a great doctor up there that my family still goes to and he knows about how very ap my family is. If you want I can pm you his info and he can help you in your decision. He's at the IHC up there. Good luck

I had a natural birth at McKay. 

 

I've  heard that Ogden Regional has tubs for water-birthing.

It was good.  I had a fantastic OB (who unfortunately is no longer in the area) and two doulas, and my dh.     At one point in time, though, I looked up and several people in scrubs (whom I didn't know) were watching me.  I was in so much pain, I didn't care, though.  I can only guess they hadn't seen anyone give birth on their hands and knees before!   But I didn't have to be strapped to any monitors.  They occasionally monitored my son's heartbeat with something cordless.  I was allowed to eat.  I did have a hep-lock in (but not hooked up to any IV) in case I needed it in an emergency. 

And then my son never left me at all....they did the weighing, cleaning, everything right in the delivery room.  (And they would have waited while I tried to nurse immediately, but I was too weak.)
