Would you ever give birth at home?

Yet another new study shows how that homebirth is as safe as hospital birth for low risk moms - http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/jmwh.12172/abstract

Would you ever consider this option?  Or have you already given birth at home?

Nope. All three entered the world via c-section so its not an option here.

Definitely wouldn't want to have a c-section at home!  I was born by c-section as well as all of my siblings :).

My son was born via c-section as well.  Home births are not for me.

Nope, would never consider it. I'm a big baby in the pain department, and I wouldn't chance it anyways.

Good point -- usually no pain meds at home.

nope...  I have high risk pregnancies and would never take the risk of an at home birth.
