I had a wonderful birth experience at Valley Hospital. I would give birth there again. The nurses were kind, efficient and respected my wishes. It was convenient having a couch that pulls out into a bed for my husband to sleep there as well(rather than a chair or bench). I think a negative factor for Valley hospital is that if you want to have a water birth, they are not equipped to do so. You might want to check that out though since my birth was 2 years ago.
