Do you regret having an out-of-hospital birth?

I would be interested to hear stories from women who choose a home or birth center birth, who wish they would have birthed in the hospital.

  • sorry, not me! I LOVED haing my kids at home! I'd like to heard these stories as well but I don't think there will be many.

  • I have read one story! Just one.

    Why do you want to know though? While I am sure there are some, not near as many as women who regret delivering in a hospital lol.

    If this question is still open, I can answer it in may. We will be having a home birth. :)

  • i hate to break it to you. . . but you're not gonna find many people who regret trying a home birth. two of my sis-in-laws started with a midwife at home and went to the hospital because of non-emergency complications. one has discovered she's got a pelvic issue that causes her to always have c-sections and the other one did another home birth and it went great!

  • I know I'm not :) Thats my point! I have met MANY women who regret their hospital birth, but none that regret their home birth. I am sure there are a few out there, but they are definately the exception!
