The reaon I ask is because I was at my home birth support group today and this subject came up. A little more than 50% of us said we would go to the hospital if that was the suggestion of our midwives or other health care provider. The other half said no. At first I was shocked but after some explanation I can understand their position and even though it's not something I would choose for myself I can respect that decision.
One mom explained that she would put it in God's hands and if the baby was meant to come than he should. She explained further but it was a long conversation. All but one mom said she would seek immediate medical attention for the baby if it was needed. The mom who wouldn't practices a religion that doesn't believe in any type of medical use or intervention in their lives.
If you are planning to give birth at home...would you go to the hospital for preterm labor or leave it in God's hands?
