I had a 9 1/2 pounder! And he was easier than my 8pound 91/2 ouncer!

Doing the work I do...I have seen where home deliveries have saved babies. I have seen things happen to babies in the hospital that would have never happened had they kept their hands out of it! Birth works! Even with severe complications I have seen it work. The caregiver has to be aware and use COMMON SENSE!

I would never come out of medical school and think that I knew how to catch babies. I feel they are ill prepared for real birth. And that is scary! I know way too much now. I guess I am ruined for medical birth. LOL!

Having said that, they do have their place!

They do it cause they can and they are afraid. OB's are some of the most fearful people I know.
