I'm really curious.. normally women that are all about homebirth and such are totally against dr's and hospitals.. so do you still try to deliver your baby at home if its breech, in a jack-knife position, or are to big to really deliver naturally and at home? I mean in most of these cases you should have a c-section but that would require a hospital and an epidural.Answer Question

It's a smart thing to be near a hospital when having a home birth. I was within walking distance to one when i had my home birth. I'm not against hospitals or anything. I just wanted to be in a comfortable environment, where i could birth my baby on MY time, not the Dr's time, where i could walk around, get in the tub & do all those other things most hospitals won't allow. I didn't want my baby getting pricked by needles & being handled by strange Nurses other random hospital people. There are more germs at hospitals too. Most infections that happen after birth are because of being in a hospital. I had one friend w/ Lupus who almost died after the birth of her son becuase she contracted a serious bacterial infection while at the hospital. You betcha, when she birthed her daughter, she did it at home.
