My cousin had a home birth after a horrible experience in the hospital with her first. She was so pleased with her home birth, I think it went very well for them.

I live in a rural area and the closest hospital (the one I'll deliver at) is a min. 30 minute drive and its a very small hospital. If you are having serious complications they sometimes can't handle that and need to transport you anyways to another hospital (those would be 45 min. to 1.5 hrs). I just don't think given my location I'd feel comfortable with a home birth.
