I was wondering, if you ladies want a homebirth(some assisted, some not- I would like an unassisted when I get pg again) and want to do it yourselves, why go to the doctor during pregnancy and have prenatal appointments? You can buy prenatal vitamins OTC and if you are experienced, you can measure your fundus yourself, and do self-checks yourself. Is all the testing and blood work really neccessary? Just wondering. Is this a ploy for doctors/medical officials/insurance companies to take our money?

**Disclaimer: I do know the good that prenatal appointments do. Testing for GD, GBS, fetal irregularities, ETC.
