I honestly don’t see why you couldn’t although I do not know whether hospitals may have a policy against that. There are some doctors that have an affliation with multiple hospitals so you aren’t stuck with using one you do not like. But to get your answer, I would just ask about it. It wouldn’t hurt.

That’s a great idea!  If you have certain stipulations for what you would want while you’re birthing, then choosing a hospital first is very important.  You can get a lot of information online about their maternity wards.  And I don’t think they would turn you away if you came for a tour.  They usually assume that you are already pregnant.

You may need to wait until flu season is over to get a tour — I wasn’t allowed at almost 9 months pregnant to get inside the maternity wing at the hospital I gave birth in until I actually went into labor. But it sounds like a good idea — talk to some nurses, as well, because often nurses will set the tone more for your delivery experience than your doctor will.
