I am newer to the area and have not had to use any hospitals around here; has anyone delivered at Carroll County hospital? if so, what are your reviews on it?
Thanks, its much appreciated.
My Ovulation Chart
I delivered at Carroll Hospital via scheduled C-section in 2011. I had a great experience (nurses and doctors included) and no complications. I plan to deliver at Carroll again in April. I have been to the ER (recently) and again had a great experience.
I delivered at a birth center, but I had a horrible ER experience with my daughter at CC when she was 5 months old and was hospitalized with RSV. I would not recommend them. I've also heard that if you want a natural labor/birth, you should not deliver there - that they pressure you into not having a natural birth (this from moms who have delivered there).
Based on my experiences in the ER with my daughter, I felt they do not have a good pediatric team and are not breast-feeding friendly (even though they do have a great breast-feeding support group that I went to a few times in the Women's Center). It took 12 people (3 tech teams) over 2 hours to get an IV in my child - that should have never happened.
I have delivered there twice, and while I have issues with somethings that occurred, I will deliver there again. I had a csection there two years ago, and recently vbaced. I really liked my nurses this time. I really trust and like my ob gyn too. I do not care for the anesthesiologist that I had both times.
I also had my D&E there, and while it was obviously an unpleasant experience, everyone was very kind and comforting.

ohhh- I hope I didn't come across as undermining your experience Holly321!
I am choosing to deliver all the way in Baltimore, myself!

I see Dr Barnett. I think he delives at St. Joseph's also.
The nurses at St Joe's told me that CCH doesn't deliver prior to 34w, so if you're a PTL risk or if you're really tied to delivering where you'd planned on delivering, you might want to pick somewhere else.
That's rumor, not fact, so you might want to check into that.
I live in Westminster and delivered at St Joe's both times. The thought of having to make it to the hospital on time in rush hour traffic was a huge fear of mine. But it worked out and I didn't have any 695 babies!
