It's funny to me that a lot of people who are deadset against homebirth don't care about studies or research. I had some of DH's family members ask me why I wanted to give birth at home and when given the facts they said I was lying. When I showed them the sources (some of those reports that you listed Nicole) they said that the reports "can't be right because more people have babies in the hospital".
"I trust birth—not birth attendants—for if you only trust birth that is attended then you really don't trust birth at all. You trust the attendant. And then you start over. Who? Doctor, surgeon, CNM, CPM, SIM? And it goes on and on...." - Carla Hartley
