I would never be comfortable without a trained professional. I don't really understand the desire to birth without a trained professional. I don't judge it at all, I just don't understand it. I think if I wanted one, I could handle a "midwife hangs out upstairs" and only comes down in an emergency arrangement, but there's just so much more that my midwife who's been in practice 17 years knows than I do.

But I draw the line at voting, "A midwife or Dr should always be present." Because someone could easily amend that thinking to "A Dr should always be present" and I totally support a woman's right to choose her birth setting and professionals.
