I delivered at Ridgeview a few years ago and had an excellent experience. The birthing suites are very nice. More importantly the labor nurses were excellent. I was in labor over 24 hours and ended up having a c-section so saw quite a few nurses through their shift changes and each one was perfect.
I know a few co-workers who also delivered there with good experiences.
+MeganS+:I have not, however that was my hospital and clinic growing up. The rest of my family still goes there. I live in southern MN now. Anyways, I've heard wonderful things about it and have always had a pleasant experience when visiting.
Pretty much this except my labor was 12hrs. I was in the Hospital M-F with my c-section recovery, LO having jaundice & I spiked a fever a couple different times. The nurses were fantastic. Despite it being almost 5 months later, I'm going to bring the nurses thank you cards & cookies this coming week.
As long as we live nearby, I don't see myself delivering anywhere but Ridgeview in the future.
ETA: I felt like I had questions about everything. They answered all of my questions honestly and respectfully. I never once felt dumb for asking a question. The LCs can be a little overbearing, especially the one that I saw. I swear she was a BFing cheerleader, literally.
