If not, I'm SUPER excited about this hospital. At the other hospital (when we lived in IL and we've since moved back to OH) they only allowed you to labor in the tub until your water broke. Since my water breaking kicked off labor both times, I was never even allowed in. My OB was very against me having the doula there and threatened to have her kicked out if she fought him on anything he deemed necessary.
The best thing about the hospital now, is that it's the same hospital I was born at, although a lot has changed since then
Where are you in Ohio? I delivered at MVH and loved it!

The middle of nowhere, along the Wayne/Holmes line.

My dad lives in Dayton and I think my step-sister had her kids there.
