Mine (in no real particular order)

1. I'm terrified of hospitals and doctors.
2. I'm a control freak and I don't want to be told what to do, what position to be in, that I should take the epi, take the risk, and let the docs have their fun.
3. I want to be able to bond with baby right away and be able to watch DH bond with baby.
4. Research says it's safer.
5. I want to be able to eat my way through contractions should I feel inclined to do so.
