Other than the obvious, it seems like if you don't go all natural at home you can't be a member of the club or have any association with anyone who is. I don't care if you give birth at home, but don't ridicule me for doing it at the hospital. That is my choice. I don't make it for anyone else's benefit but mine and my baby's.Answer Question

I do think that. I had a horrible hospital birth so I switched to a birthing center for the rest of my children. Well, that birthing center shut down and I'm ready to delivery at any time. I looked up midwives who would come to the house but what I found was disappointing. I'm not "all natural". I want my children vaccinated and their dad has chosen to have the boys circumcised. When I tried to find out if this particular group of midwives would help me, I found instead they told me a million things wrong with both. I sadly found that I don't fit in with either hospital birthing OR home birthing "groups". That's okay though, to each their own. I agree, this is a choice I made for myself and my baby, not anyone else.

I think people do what is best for them and some people think their way is the only way or the best way. I don't think there is a division (in real life at least) I think it's more of people who make the same choices looking for others to relate too.

i don't know about having a home birth, reason being, I would wonder if everything was clean enough. Heck, just cleaning the toys, dishes and house works keeps me busy, so to clean and make sure everything was sterile, would be hard since I already have 3 children. I'm not pregnant...so it doesn't really matter. Also, I kind of like the break for that 2 days I am in the hospital...and don't have to cook or worry about anything but me and my baby.
