Choosing the right Hospital! Important things to be aware of...
Just read over a previous post I made about how badley women in some countries are mistreated. The U.S. may not be perfect, but my heart truly goes out to these women being tortured so badly during childbirth.
Anyhow, after reading a few comments/ replies on my post, I realized that so many people don't know what to look & how to choose a hoptial.

I know many people choose just to look at the reviews of the hospitals.

Someone may have given the hospital a bad rating, but that is just a personals opinion. So it's always
Important to look through the factual reports! Hope this was helpful to anyone who may be worried about choosing the right hospital. I know I left lots of information out as I'm very exhausted from lack of sleep, so feel free to ask about anything that I didn't clearly explain. I also have a bad tendency of expecting people to just understand what I'm taking about & won't Clarify myself very well!
