I will always have a hospital birth.. Nothing against homebirths at all, but my family has a history of our babies being born with weird problems... My little sister was born dead and was resuscitated after 15 minutes, my niece was extremely jaundiced and Marcus had breathing problems and needed the NICU [tho he was a week late] for example. Yeah... hospital for me

I had a hospital birth. They were very supportive of me not wanting any interventions or drugs. For the next one I was thinking a home birth, but DH wants to do the hospital again

Oh! Ok. We have midwives but I don't know of any birth centre around here.

First- hospital
Second- free standing birth center
Third- I havent decided on home or birth center again...

I wouldnt mind going to a hospital if they let you leave after the birth. We have some doctors around here that I wouldnt mind going to but like I said its the hospital policies that keep me from going back.

I had my daughter at a free-standing birth center. This baby will be born at a birth center within the hospital.

Other - DD was born at a free standing birth center run by a pair of CNMs.

This time around the nearest birth center is an hour away, and I was unable to find a CNM that would do a home birth, so the hospital it is. I am still coming to terms with the hospital, hoping to do a tour soon to alleviate some of my fears.
