In class we are able to cover many details like induction rates, which hospitals are doula friendly, and where your decisions like to eat in labor, labor in a variety of positions, or birth in an upright position are most likely to be honored... after all... these are YOUR decisions to make, not your doctor's. If you choose a doctor or hospital that tells you upfront that these are not your decisions, I may not be able help you achieve the birth you want.
To help simplify this choice just a bit, I put together this chart. It compares Natividad Medical Center, Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital, Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, Dominican Hospital, Sutter Maternity and Surgery Center, and home birth. It is available in printable PDF form here. This is something you are welcome to print and share! I hope you find it helpful.
