Hello,
I just moved back to the area after several years and am pregnant with our second child. I am having a hard time deciding which area hospital to give birth in. Can anyone share their experience? I live in Nazareth, so the closest hospital is Easton. Lehigh Valley allows midwives to practice in their birthing center, which would be great but it is a bit of a drive. I don't know much about St. Lukes hospitals birthing center, but my sister was there last month for surgery and went home with a MRSA infection! Yes, it could happen anywhere, but it left a bad taste in my mouth. Any advice or points of interest would be helpful. My last birthing experience took place in a rural hospital, the staff was great but I felt like I had a lot of unnecessary interventions that ultimately made my labor harder than I felt it should of been. Thanks!

I delivered my middle child at Lehigh Valley hospital and had a great experience. I had a csection but was treated wonderfully.
I would have delivered my last child there but we moved quite a ways from there. Sorry I dont have info on the other hospitals though.

I had all three of my children at St. Lukes Bethlehem and plan on having my fourth in April. All 3 times they were absolutely wonderful!
