Birthing center tour

I went to an open house hospital tour of the birthing center last night!! We are fortunate enough to live near 4 GREAT hospitals within 20 min. away. and 2 of the best are 5 min. away from our house. I delivered at one of them with DS but wanted to check out the other one right across the street but not sure I like it as much.

I cannot stop thinking about the delivery now!!! Not sure if it was a good idea to go this early or not. I am getting so excited and anxious and those babies in the nursery were so cute and tiny. It's hard to believe that I will have one of those soon!

Anyone else getting ahead of themselves?

Me! LOL! We go on our tour Saturday. I am super excited. My sister gave birth to her son there almost 6 years ago, but it was just like a regular hospital. Now I have heard that they are considered an in-hospital birthing center and it is the place to go if you are looking to have a natural birth, but are not a candidate for a home birth or stand alone birthing center. I am really looking forward to checking it out. Smile

That is very fortunate to have so many great options so close. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour.

I will be giving birth in the same hospital as DD. Unfortunately, our area doesn't have any birthing centers. But, since I will be a repeat Csect, it's ok. I'm scared to death I'm going to go early because I'm so behind on "getting things ready". Last time I wanted to go early & didn't. Too funny!

I did my tours last time with DS and plan on going to the same place. The tours are great though, they really help you calm your nerves about where you will be when the time comes.

How exciting for everyone!

I'm having this baby same place I had my last 2, it's my HMO's hospital so I don't get a choice. I hated it but It's better than paying out of pocket.
