Best places to give birth in U.S.? Haven't seen much listed, mostly about how deadly of a place U.S. is to give birth at. And several obgyns?

In U.S. saying to avoid obgyns here. Pretty sad to see obgyns warning people from visiting their own selves and against them doing their procedures they were trained for. But I'm not really seeing anything about great places to deliver bb here, except for very few for superficial reasons such as they offer room service and photographer. (But still have 1 in 3 cesarean rate) Stuff like manicures, has nothing to do with Drs medical abilities. people can get food from anyfreakinwhere, it makes no difference on how well the baby is delivered. And if a celebrity used them, does not make me feel like it's any better of an establishment. Just bc someone's a celebrity doesn't mean Drs don't mess up or perform Unnecessary surgery. It looks like they're often giving birth at the same shitholes as everyone else, just paid more for a different room there. I've seen stuff about maternity hotels but in this country they're only scams to rip tourists off with, for birth tourism.

    What in the heck are you talking about? t. There is no "best" place to give birth in the US unless it's in a hospital and the mother is attended by a doctor and nurses. . Most all babies born in the US ARE delivered by OB's, and those doctors know what they're doing.

    These days, in the US, many General Practice doctors refuse to deliver babies - they refer their pregnant patients to an OB/GYN, and let him take the heat. That's because of all the frivolous malpractice suits that have been filed by parents in cases where the baby had something "wrong" with it at the time it was born. Those parents are trying to blame the doctor for something that went "wrong" with the baby while it was still in the womb, and they want to claim that the doctor could somehow have prevented it. .

    The U.S. has a higher infant mortality rate (and maternal mortality) than most other industrialized nations, but that has more to do with poverty and lack of health care than lack of ability and training among OB's.

    The chances of a baby surviving - anywhere - in America are much greater than in almost all other countries. Many European countries do not count babies who die in their first year as live births. The statistics are accordingly skewed.

      In some countries very early, non-viable premature births are not counted, even if they live briefly after birth. But that's a very small number anyway.

    Places that are pro-life for starters would be the most ideal.
