I decided not to deliver at Jennersville(went to Chester County)because a friend of mine had the experience of having her baby have to go to the NICU at CCH and she had to stay at Jennersville. She had her first child at Jennersville with no problems and returned with the second, which is when this happened. Maybe it would be better to talk to a midwife who practices out of Jennersville regarding their experience.
As far as I see....
Pros- closer, private rooms, midwives available
Cons- No NICU- possible seperation with baby if NICU care needed, questioanble rep for hospital in general
Pros- NICU, Good reputation
Cons-Farther away, Usually have to use Cheter County OBGYN practice with satelitte office in Kennett for appointments- no midwives, shared rooms(ugh!)
Its a tough choice, I don't know if there is a better answer, it will just boil down to personal preference I think. I'm an anxious person, so since I had a friend who had the actual experience of being seperated from her baby I erred on the side of caution and went to CCH. My experience there was ok, can't rave but I will probably go back when we decide to have another.
Good Luck, S.
