Does anyone know what percentage of homebirths end up in the hospital simply because the mom got scared and changed her mind?

Have any of you been in this situation?

I'm just curious because I was recently watching Pregnant in America and at one point during labor the woman was asking to go to the hospital for an epidural.

I consider myself well educated on the risks of medical interventions and 100% do NOT want to end up in a hospital. I'm also taking birth class and learning relaxation techniques. Both my husband and I are pretty excited to birth at home and have even bought a homebirthed onsie for our babe.
However this is my first child and I'm scared that at the last second I won't be strong enough.
