I don't hesitate following ob orders at all. I'm a pediatric dietician by trade, not a doctor. But being in the medical field and I'm on the consulting panel for a lot of respected doctors, they tell me not to home birth or that it's ok to home birth or you need a c section I'm gonna listen!

I'm not a home birther, and have never aspired to be- but I will fight for their right to have the type of birth they want in the environment they want, and I will definitely fight for it to become more of a standard.
As for modelling our system off of great Britain's, I agree the financial benefits would merely be a perk, and not a major reason for the change... But I still think its a much better system than we have now.
I agree that there are many people who use c-sections for their convenience (to get the ob they want, to match a partners FIFO schedule etc), to suggest that all electives could be done naturally with no risk is just not right.
