I delivered at United and I found the staff to be helpful and friendly. I was also pleased to find that their store sold Halo sleepers for $12 instead of the $20 I'd pay at BBB. Being next to Children's did ease my mind as well. I'm glad that we didn't need to go to Children's, but it was nice to know that it was nearby.
Yes, I thought the food was fine too. :)
Overall, I was pleased with the hospital. My only complaint is that we were only there for one night. If the baby is born before 3 PM, you are out the next day. I would have liked to have two nights because my baby was two weeks early and I wanted her to be monitored a bit longer.
I delivered both my babies at St. Joe's. I loooove them. The food isn't that great but the nurses were completely wonderful. I especially loved the overnight nurse I had with DS this past August.
The rooms are kind of small though. My sister had her baby at St. John's in Maplewood and her room was twice as big as the rooms at St. Joe's.
SL Bride:Thank you all for your help! I ended up going with Regions based on these comments and some from faculty where my husband will be teaching. I called labor and delivery and the nurse was very helpful in suggesting doctors-even giving me her favorites :) I made an appointment with Katie Krumwiede at The St Paul Clinic based on her recommendations. Thanks again!
She is the.absolute.best. Love her,
