Hi Moms and Moms-To-Be!
I am newly pregnant and have narrowed down my birthing locations to either St Luke's Roosevelt aka Mt Sinai West or Mt Sinai Beth Israel.
I still have not chosen my midwife yet, which would be at either at St Luke's in Morningside Heights or Beth Israel at Union Square for the prenatal visits, so I thought I would reach out to all of the knowledgeable NYC moms and moms-to-be for your input and experiences with either of these locations.
The facilities at St Luke's Roosevelt look a bit newer and I love that they have a private jetted tub in each room for the labor (not delivery) but the birthing center for me is unfortunately out because all of the midwives are out of my insurance network; this location is also closer to me (I live in Harlem). Beth Israel was very welcoming and it seems they have a very strong midwife culture there.
Any thoughts or input that you have would be amazing and thank you in advance for your help!
