I don't think I would regret going ot the birth center, but I do think I would always wonder what could have been. I've wanted a home birth since my last pregnancy and could never convince DH into it, so we went with the birth center. He seems more open now and we feel this is our last baby, so I wonder if I will regret not having a home birth afterwords.

Money isn't even a huge factor, it looks like we will pay a bit more for a home birth, than what we would end up paying out of pocket for the birth center. Last time though, I didn't even care if we got reimbursed, the cost was worth it to me even if we didn't get any money back from insurance. I talked to a friend of mine last night and it looks like it will be anywhere from $1500-2600 for a homebirth midwife in this area, which doesn't end up being much more than we would pay out of pocket for the birth center.

It's just so hard to decide to step out of my comfort zone again, get ot know someone new and take a chance, you know?
