No specific information but my friend used a birthing center in Bryn Mawr (near Philly).

I believe she said that the majority of her patients push for about 30 min...she doesn't have patients actually push just because they are 10cm...she'll tell them to do what they feel is natural but if they aren't feeling like pushing...don't because the body will move the baby down anyway.
There's another midwife there named Pat McCalley Sunday (yes her initials are PMS) and she delivered my first 2. She's also great. She's at the same hospital but in a practice of her own. I can only remember the last 4 of her phone number...but if you call the hospital they would have the number.
There is a birth center or something near Holy Redeemer Hospital...I've heard awful things so that might be a place to stay away from. Though there is an amazing group of peds at Holy Redeemer...they name is not coming to me though but one of the peds also works at Jeanes...that's how I found out about them.
