Why or why not?
No freaking way. Too dangerous IMO.
No. My son would be dead if I had attempted one. As it was, he had to be cut out of me with no time to give me pain meds and then resuscitated.
I don't say anything to people who plan home births though. It's their choice.
Yes. In fact, I might with my next baby.
I have had an in hospital experience, and a birthing center experience. I will NEVER give birth in a hospital again unless something goes wrong ! If homebirth happens to be my best option, that's what I would do. My number 1 choice is a birthing center birth though.
No...Just because it can be done does not mean it's the best way to be done...
I would love to if my insurance would cover a midwife... but it doesn't
