Northside Hospital in Atlanta (nicknamed "the baby factory of America" because of the highest number of babies born in any US hospital) banned them both about 5 or six years ago. You cannot shoot any still or video images during the actual birthing process. I suspect they are afraid of possible medical malpractice lawsuites...

I was allowed to shoot only because my wife works there as an L&D registered nurse.
