If you have to travel away from your own home, anyway, a freestanding birth center would be pretty much the same great environment, minus the factor of potentially disturbing a friend/family member's family life for a day or two.
I would love to go to a birth center. I think that would be ideal for me but the closest one is at least 3 hours away and that just wouldn't work out. I really wish there was something closer. If home birth isn't an option I think my next best option would be to drive an hour away for midwifery care and to deliver in a more NCB-friendly hospital.

Edited: I actually just saw that both the birth centers in Indianapolis are closing, so the closest one to me would probably be The Farm, which is about 5 hours away, I think. Although I would love to give birth on The Farm I'm pretty sure that won't be an option.
