This is my 1st pregnancy and I'm not happy with the thought of going to a hospital to give birth. Have anyone here given birth at home or in a birthing center? HOw was your experience? how much did it cost? If you live in the Bay Area would you send me some sites where I can find a birthing center and a midwife!?
I"m trying to convince my hubby to having baby at home, I just feel I would have more freedom to move around with out the restrictions I would get at the hospital and the pressure for pain medication!
PLEASE HELP! thanks :)

I haven't had a home birth (I am due in 9 days) I am going with a midwife practice within a hospital, though. I love it. It's the closest thing to a home birth I can get while not in home (my insurance will not cover a home birth unfortunately- I want one so bad!). I pulled up a search for local doulas in the bay area for you. Doulas are a great source of information for home birth and networking with midwives to find the one for you.There is also a great site that I found my doula on- www.doulamatch.net

With the c-section rate as high as it is I think it is a toss up which way is safer. Babies and mothers die in hospitals too you know. Babies have been pit to distress. Mothers have died under anesthesia. Life ain't perfect and nobody get out of life alive. You do your research and fine a good situation for you.
