I plan to HB for both reasons too. For one, our hospital is notorious for the mistreatment of mothers and infants, forcing unneccessary interventions, and making degrading or otherwise insulting comments. For two, I HATE hospitals, everything about them. They don't just make me uncomfortable, they make me angry.

If it came down to an emergency, I'm not worried... the hospital is literally two blocks away (another reason I'm getting inlaw flack about staying at home). I would much rather be able to zone out in my own home, go into "mommy mode" and just do my thing than be yelled at to push, jabbed, poked, prodded etc. Not really conducive to a pleasant labor experience for me. The last time around, between me and my mom, we nearly knocked the teeth out of several people... not to mention she kicked the ob out of the room and delivered my daughter because he was a total jerk.
