Having one in January and cannot wait. There are so many misconceptions about home births, it is really sad. Midwives are prepared for complications, they have equipment and methods to deal with them. And if a transfer is needed, then they know how to keep things stable until you reach the hospital.
Home births are really quite safe.
Anyways, I think they are great and cannot wait to have mine in January. This is the first time I have ever actually been excited about giving birth. My first I was so unsure of everything that was going on, my second I was so afraid of the same junk repeating itself at the hospital. Now, with a home birth, I am more confident that the outcome will be much more positive than my horrible hospital experiences.
