If you had to, would you birth in a hospital? Hypothetically, lets say they outlaw home birth and all midwives are thrown in jail. Would you birth at home UC or go to the hospital?

I really dont know!! LOL I had 2 hospital NATURAL births, I had pro natural birth doctor, no interventions at all, and a doula, then I had 2 home births, planning 3rd now, but I dont know what I would do in that case!! I would probably force my doula to deliver my baby at home

I would only go to the hopital if it there was a true medical need. I have had 8 homebirths with one transfer after birth - I cannot imagine birthing in the hospital.

I've had two UC's on purpose already...if they made it illegal like I could go to jail or be separated from my baby by CPS or something, I would birth in the hospital.

I'm honestly not sure. I might go the hospital route with my midwives in attendance. I had some really random complications after my homebirth that required Rx stuff and I wouldn't trust my passed out self or my DH to take care of that, ykwim?

I would pray that I would go into labor while dh was at work, then UC. Short of a medical emergency there's NO way I will ever deliver in a hospital again.

I'm already considering UC'ing this time if I go into labor and DH is at work. I'll call him when I know its close enough so he can hopefully get here in time to see his child born... but if he's here, he'll want to call the midwife (who will honestly be here more for his peace of mind than for mine).

I am thinking that I would have to go the UC route unless I was having complications. It is not about me or my experience, but I would not want them to get ahold of my baby. I have big babies. They would poke them and prick them and jab them and stab them and threaten to give them glucose water or formula!! ACK!!! Nope, no hospital birth for me unless it is an emergency.

UC

My midwife will only attend births between 37-42 weeks, so if I go into labor at 35, 36 or 43 weeks I'm planning to UC anyway.

I don't know. I would search really long and hard for pro-MW that goes to hospitals and be very very strict on the whole birth plan thing with the hospital. I may try UC.

Well, that is a huge hypothetical thing that would never happen... but...

I would just have my baby at home on my own, like I have twice already as I have already faced this.

I will say, if there was a medical need to birth in hospital (to me this is meaning a medical need for a cesarean birth) I would attend to the hospital.
