I am hoping to learn about the expereinces others have had in the Ashville, Hickory, or Gastonia area of NC. I live in Morganton and am hoping to get some good feedback on the different hospitals that are with in an hour drive.
I am hoping to have a natural childbirth and would like to hear feedback especially on hospitals that had a respectful approach to the mothers wishes / birth plan or preferences. Also, what places didn't feel so institutional... Hospitals freak me out in general, so if I could find one that was a bit more homey in the maternity ward that would be super.
Lastly, I am also hoping to hear any info on OB practices that are all female. I dont know if anybody else is uncomfortable with a male other then my husband "in my business", but I'm just not feeling it.
