I'm a labor and delivery nurse in NY and my husband and I are thinking about moving to Aiken SC soon.
We're also trying to get pregant so I'm researching hospitals in the area.
I think I like Georgia Health Sciences University in Augusta because it's close to Aiken, has a good NICU and a midwife on staff.
I've also heard good things about Lexington Medical Center and they have midwives also.
Any opinions on hopsitals in the area are welcome!

Lexington would be my first...never worked there however. Baptist delivers bunches of babies. The OB's are usually right across the bridge that connects the medical offices. Providence Northeast I believe is stopping their OB for low census and concentrating on hearts, ortho and neuro.
If you are having a difficult pg, or are needing preemie care then Palmetto Richland-the teaching hospital is the way to go. Only level 3 and has a dedicated "Stork Ambulance" to pick up outlying preemies that may need critical care and or ECMO.
