Natural at home childbirth

I'm interested in different people's opinions of this subject.

After watching the documentary "The Business of Being Born" I have decided when I have a baby I want to have a natural at home birth with a midwife there for assistance.

I told a few people of this and they thought it was a bad idea. My grandmother even went as far to say that women who give birth at home should have jail time for endangering their baby.

I believe that having a natural at home birth could be a good experience for me.


Closing Statement from Haley Goranson

For me now, a birthing center would seem comfortable. Thanks
