Which one is better to give birth at? I had planned on using Cabell because I am familiar with everything there, but my OBGYN wants me to use St Mary's. What's the main difference between the two other than the NICU? Food, Service, Staff, Rooms, Privacy, etc.?

At Smmc you will stay in the room that you labor and deliver. It's different departments at Cabell. You can tour the dept if you want. Meet the staff and see the rooms.

If, God forbid, anything happens to your baby you don't want to be at SMMC. They don't have a NICU. Your baby would be at CHH and you'd be at SMMC. I don't know about you, but I would not want to be in a different hospital than my baby.
WTH?

Definitely CHH! Anything could happen and seconds count, so you want to be somewhere that has a NICU!!!

Smmc is where I had my daughter it's a really good hospital and she ended up not breathing and other issue and they do have a step down she was on breathing tent and heart monitors. St Mary's is very nice and polite

I have had three children. I had my first at St Mary's and the last two at Cabell. I liked both hospitals. Both hospitals were very courteous, took excellent care of both me and my baby, and just a good experience all around. I would recommend either hospital for maternity care. Good luck and prayers for a safe pregnancy, speedy delivery, and healthy mommy and baby. :)

Its not a big deal to have the baby in the labor and delivery department and then get your actual room on mother baby unit. They wheel u around to the rooms. I had both of mine at CHH and they were great and unfortunately on the second one we had to use the NICU.

I delivered at St. Mary's and she had trouble breathing. She was moved to Cabell and I stayed at St. Mary's until I was able to leave. I cried my heart out the entire time. I knew my husband was with her and he kept me informed, but I was worried sick.

I'm pregnant again and I have told my OB, no way will I deliver at St. Mary's this time. I can't go through that again.

Good luck with your baby!

CHH is great. I had my daughter there 3 months ago and I was pleased with the proffesionalism everyone showed. I also liked that if a problem was to arise the OR is right down the hall, no waiting. I don't have experience with SMMC Labor Dept, but I wasn't pleased of the care my loved one received in another dept. The staff seemed to be "uncaring" , however one bad experience doesn't constitute it to be a bad hospital either.

Go to Kings Daughters for the best care!! Both hospitals (CHH and SMMC) are BAD!!! They suck at care and the employees only care about grabbing each others ass! So go where the care is given not an STD

I had my son at st Mary's and have had nursing clinicals at cabell. I would prefer st Mary's. Both are great hospitals. Yes cabell has the nicu but if something was to happen at st marys and your baby needs to go there you are allowed to go with them! You are allowed to check yourself out and go to the other hospital. I liked st Mary's because I stayed in one room the entire time. I had a c section and was able to hold my baby while they finished and was never separated from him. Cabell is great too but after seeing both I prefer st Mary's unless you are high risk.

St.marys should be the best at child birth, after all the screwing that goes on there!!! not to speak of the BJ, I seen one of the RN and a DR. the other day, with his pants around his knees... maybe she was checking him out !!! I had to cover for another one the other day, her husband called looking for her. What do you know,,, she was in the bathroom,,LOL... You would think he would figure it out by now,,,
