Choosing where to give birth is one of the biggest decisions you'll make.
In many cases you'll choose where to deliver your baby based on where your doctor has privileges. So keep that in mind when choosing a doctor or midwife. If you have private insurance, you'll have more options available. In any case, take the time and do your research.
This may be a once-, twice-, or even 5 times in a lifetime event, and knowing what to expect in advance can make it oh-so-much more enjoyable.
