I was born at Northwest Community hospital and I think it still has a good reputation. Northwestern Memorial downtown has amazing labor and delivery unit- some Nurse Midwives and some OBGYNs. Plus if anything goes wrong they have a high level NICU within the hospital as well as Children’s Laurie’s NICU next door. I also know that Advoate in Park Ridge is really well known for their labor and delivery unit- very good nursing care there.

I’m 17 weeks pregnant with my first and planning to deliver at Elmhurst too. If you’re still on the hunt for a doctor, my OB is RPW Obstetrics in Elmhurst, and so far I really like them! There are 5 doctors there, and they make you see all 5 so that no matter who’s on call on the day you deliver, you’ll know your doctor. I haven’t seen all 5 yet, but the 3 I have seen so far have all been really great. And their hours are convenient; after the first couple of long appointments, I’ve been able to schedule all of my appointments for after work or on weekends, which has been awesome work-wise.

I’m a NICU nurse in your area and I always said I’d never deliver at a hospital unless they had a level III NICU, however I am exposed to the worst of the worst. Elmhurst is a very nice and new hospital! Good luck and congrats! smile

Elmhurst looks really nice.  I live in the northwest burbs too.  I chose a practice in Glenview that delivered in Evanston.  It was far but fine.  Next time I’m looking to go closer.  I was thinking somewhere in Barrington so I can go to Alexian Brothers.  Thats the barrington hospital, right?
