I respect the rights of a mother to decide where she wants to deliver her baby, and I have no issue with people who choose homebirth. For me, I was happy to have a hospital birth, with access to drugs and numerous hightly trained medical personell around to deal with any issues that could have occured. I was a young, healthy woman with an easy pregnancy and a perfectly healthy baby. I just feel that things can change so quickly, and for me I needed to feel safe in the knowledge help was at hand if needed.
This! I had a fantastic pregnancy and a wonderful birth, in a private hospital with my lovely Ob. I'm so lucky that I had a wonderful experience. I look forward to doing it all again. Although I'm a little worried that I might end up having an accidental freebirth at home... things happened very quickly with DS!
