I'm for what mom wants. I would LOVE to have a home birth (with a midwife) but i'm considered a "high risk delivery" because of my history of PP hemorrhage.
Since I can't have one, I have an AWESOME OB with a really low C-Section rate who doesn't push for inductions, and so far, he's been completely accommodating to all my birthing wishes. He always loves hearing about the stats and such that I bring in regarding interventions and such, and really takes time to understand where i'm coming from. I don't think there is another OB out there quite like him.
My only wish is that more women were better educated about birth, and what consists a true medical reason for inductions and C-Sections. But, it's not my body, baby, or birth, so I can only help to inform those who WANT info. I hope EVERY woman gets the birth she so desires, no matter who delivers the baby, or where baby is born.
