What hospital did you tour? Do you have a doctor yet? We really like ours if you need a recommendation :)

I toured Group Health Hospital in Capital Hill. I had a really great birth in Australia with midwives that I decided to go that route again. I have heard too many stories about how doctors in the US only want to get it done and I want to have a natural relaxing birthing process. I am thinking about doing it at home but I need to do some research on that before I decide.

I have heard wonderful things about the Midwives at both Swedish in Ballard, and also UW. Also, Evergreen has great midwives and a birthing center - but that's all the way in Kirkland. Good luck deciding! We almost went the midwife route as well, but instead settled on an OB with a doula :)

I don't know what hospital you plan to go to but at the Group Health one they only allow 2 visitors at a time due to swine flu. I heard someone ask about doulas and apparently they count as a visitor, not a medical helper.

A lime baby?! Yummy!
