In April, on the Enjoy Birth blog, writer Sheridan shared her experiences with two Orange County women's hospitals. She compared Hoag and Saddleback, based on several criteria. Here's a short excerpt of what she found:
"Needless to say, when a mom asks me where the best place to birth is, I recommend Saddleback. I share the statistics and the experiences I have had as a doula and from the birth stories I have heard my students share."
Based on Saddleback Women's Hospital's lower Cesarean rate, Sheridan recommends our hospital for expectant mothers.
Saddleback Women's Hospital at Saddleback Memorial Medical Center offers a team of highly trained obstetricians, pediatricians and other specialists who are sensitive to the needs of new mothers and their babies, and are committed to providing the highest level of service. We deliver nearly 3,000 babies a year, and of these, approximately 10 percent are high-risk births and high-risk multiples referred from throughout Orange County and the surrounding area.
