I am having trouble deciding between the two. I love the idea of giving birth at Mary Birch because it's so well known, I have a good friend who is a nurse there, and I know a lot of women who have given birth there.... BUT, I researched UCSD, and they have a whole birthing center that I think looks amazing. I would love to not be hooked up the whole time, to have the freedom to roam the halls, do some yoga poses, sit on an "birthing" ball, and take a bath. And the greatest thing is that if/when I need an epidural, I can easily be moved up to the labor & delivery floor. They also have midwives that deliver the babies, and free doula service...
So, all of that said, what do you think I should do? I would love to hear from anyone who's given birth at UCSD, because I don't personally know anyone who's had a baby there, in the birthing center.
