that a homebirth is perfectly safe?
We are currently TTC #2 and I would love a homebirth but DH just isn't going for it. I have provided him with studies showing that homebirths are just as safe, if not safer, than hospital births (he is a facts kind of guy) but he still hasn't been convinced. He's just afraid something could go wrong and we are about 25 minutes from the nearest hospital.
With our first daughter I had a natural childbirth in a hospital and it was a great experience for being in a hospital but I would love to have a home water birth this time around. I also had a completely routine, complication free pregnancy last time so I think I would be perfect to have a home birth.
