Hey! I'm having my first baby in October and am currently going to Greenville memorial and seeing the OBGYNs at the Verde office. They are nice enough but I was shocked when I heard Greenville memorial has a 98% epidural rate. I REALLY want to try for a natural birth, I'm 24 and perfectly healthy, every time I go to the doctor they just tell me how normal I am and how smoothly everything is going; so natural seem very possible.
Is there anywhere better to go? I would like my first birth to be in a hospital but I'm worried I will be uncomfortable and looked down on for wanting a natural birth at a hospital with such high rates. I would much rather feel encouraged and built up for that choice. Know of anywhere?
