Home Births are illegal in my state?!?!

So I really wanted to deliver my son in my home, my midwife informed me that she would be arrested if she attended a home birth.  Are you kidding me?!?!  We have NO birthing centers, No breastfeeding friendly hospitals (everyone gets sent home with formula) So I had him in a hospital where I was forced into having an IV and I had to labor on my back I was also told I HAD to have pitocin after I gave birth.  I cried because I was so disappointed in the whole experience. Its been a year and I'm still upset on how I was treated and forced to have my baby.  I either need to move before I have another baby...or something needs to change!

If you live in Alabama you can join the birth coalition, I believe that's what it's called.

I moved to have my home birth. I actually know several people who did.

I have a friend that lives in a state that it is illegal. It's actually illegal here in china as well. You know it's not illegal to have an accident at home though :) that's what I'll be doing with my next one. I'm SICK of hospitals.
