We toured Northside Hospital Women's Center this evening. I can honestly say that we were both thoroughly impressed by the facility, the organization, the tour guide and the labor/delivery room. I felt as though we were walking through a hotel the entire time - you'd never know it was a hospital!
This is definitely THE place to have a baby. Neither of us could get over the size of the labor/delivery room. Shoot, they even have hardwood floors and flat screen TV's!
