Would you rather have a hospital or home birth?

Or a birth center birth?

  • I prefer to have a baby in the parking lot of the hospital, get checked out in the ER, and then go home. It's by far the least expensive birth we've had.

  • Birth center with a midwife who was into natural births with little to no interventions.

  • Hospital. I got wiggy with my deliveries and needed to be in the hospital..."just in case." But I did get a spinal headache with my 3rd pregnancy and debated for a long time this question when I was pregnant with my fourth. won for me.

  • Hospital. I had "picture perfect" pregnancies but with a couple I had complications right after baby was born that if I hadn't been in the hospital, I could have died. I had a midwife with all of mine, all the benefits of that, but the comfort of knowing if something went wrong we had all the medical stuff/staff right there too.

  • I so desperately want to have a home birth! My bed, my home, my bath, my things when I need them. But my insurance won't cover a home birth.
