So damn smug I need my own room.

Is it worth it to switch practices just to have a better shot at getting a private room? [more inside]

What are these maternity doctors and nurses chanting?

[Link is NSFW: graphic childbirth.] What is the maternity staff chanting in this video? They seem to have a few different songs, one for when the woman is pushing and another for once the baby is born. The notes for the video say that they are in "an Asian country" but I don't know what language they're speaking. [more inside]

Where is the hospital I was born at? (in Brooklyn, NY)

Where is the hospital I was born at? (in Brooklyn, NY) I am trying to figure out what has become of the hospital I was born at. I was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1969. The hospital on my Birth Certificate says "Brooklyn Jewish Medical Center". My family moved to Queens a few years after I was born and then I moved out of New York altogether when I was 27. I never really knew Brooklyn that well, although I have been trying to visit there more over the years. [more inside]

The hospital is making me sick.

How do I make a hospital birth not suck? Suddenly midwife-less. Local hospital a horror. Bitter, depressed. What does a doula actually do? Etc, etc. [more inside]
