OB vs Midwife vs Hosp vs Birthing center vs Home... help I am so confused.
I am 8 weeks pregnant with my first baby. My first thought was to use the same OB my sister did she highly recommended him so it seemed like the logical choice.
Now I am reading more on here and in other groups about how OBs are "bad" and all the benefits of a home births and feel like I need to do some more research.
What type of birth did you choose and why?
My main concerns are...
What if something goes wrong?
I highly doubt my boyfriend or family would be onboard with a home birth, how do you convince family?
I REALLY don't handle pain well, what if I can't manage without drugs?
My sister had two c-sections because she has big babies and is build really small. I read somewhere that family history is a good indicator of your pregnancy and birth. I am smaller than her. What if the baby gets stuck?
Any and all advice is appreciated right now.
