Any natural birth experiences Inova Fairfax

I'm set to deliver in July and really want an unmedicated birth.  I keep reading horror stories about Inova Fairfax, but they don't seem to be from women who actually delivered there.  Do any of you ladies have any experience delivering at Inova Fairfax and if so, what was your sense of how supportive they are of unmedicated deliveries?

Thanks in advance!
