Best place to give birth in south AL?

I’ve had many negative (one or two borderline abusive) experiences within the healthcare system due to being chronically ill (nothing that impacts childbearing, thankfully) so a hospital is the last place I want to be when giving birth. If not for the increased risk of neonatal death here in the states, I’d totally do a home birth with a midwife, but as is I feel like I don’t have many options.

I’m in the Mobile area. Anyone know what the best place to go would be for a birth on my own terms—at least as much as possible? I’ve had friends who went to birthing centers in hospitals where they had “birth designers” and all, but still were pressured into unwanted interventions or berated, so it feels like a gamble.

Willing to go to Pensacola if I have to.
