Ladies don't have your babies at The Birthplace. \r
The nurses were cold, bothered by us and had no bedside manner. The labor & delivery nurse went about the room doing her business even as I had huge painful contractions. I had to use my own diapers ask for bottles for my newborn. I was provided four 2 oz bottles and when that ran out it seemed like a bother for them to get me more.. even when I asked they gave me JUST ONE 2 oz bottle. There was no soap in the shower, no towels in the bathroom. I ran out of toilet paper and people were in and out of my room the entire time. The staff there is miserable, unhappy, unpleasant, cold, mean and have no bed side manner at all. Even the epidural they gave me didn't work and they had to reinsert it. I was made to get up on my feet only 1 hour after giving birth. I was made to urinate and quickly rushed into a room. They wouldn't let me rest by giving me a few hours of sleep. They didn't want to take the baby into the nursery, not even in the middle of the night. It was a horrible horrible place and it wasn't exactly that clean either. \r
What should have been the happiest place in the hospital emloyed the most miserable people I've come in contact with in a long time. Save yourself the horrible expierence and go with a hospital with a caring staff. You can't even get a ginger ale or coke at The Birthplace as they lock up refreshments from the patients.
