Personally I don't see a problem with 32 minutes away, I'm no expert of course, but it wouldn't deter me from a homebirth. 90 minutes wouldn't deter me actually. We're 15-25 minutes from our chosen hospital, but actually our midwife lives almost 90 minutes from our home.
For me personally distance to hospital had nothing to do with my decision to home birth-since I have no intention of going there!

You may want to meet with a midwife and bring the question to her. With her being right in the area, she would have the most useful advice for you. She can give you details and facts on situations where women had to be transported.

Good luck on finding the best birthing option for your family. Oh and don't feel silly asking questions here, that's what the board is for.
