I LOVED LOVED LOVED it and is a reason I would love to have a homebirth. BUT being 85+ miles from a hospital it's not an option (if something were to go wrong). It has shown me though that I do have a voice and I CAN say NO to things I don't want, like pitocin, etc.

I have watched it a couple times wish I had seen it before DD was born. I did EVERYTHING the hospital told me and in the end had a horrible delivery and I blame all the drugs.
I would love to do a home birth but there are no Midwives around here that do home births (at least that I know of). I am going to attend a couple LLL meetings once I get farther in my pregnancy and I am sure some of those ladies can direct me towards one. At the very least I am going to use the birth center in the hospital and try for a 100% natural birth. I still have to find out all the "rules" I don't want even an IV but it all depends on what the hospital makes you do I guess.

A hospital can not make you do anything. I find it awful that so many people lack control when it comes to their births . Most standard protocol is to insert a saline lock JIC of an emergency, but you CAN refuse ANYTHING. The nurses may tell you that your putting you and your baby at risk but, they can not make you do it. Its just not legal.
