No, I haven't.

Everyone who tells me homebirth is nuts, says "But I will be so much more COMFORTABLE in the hospital! Wouldn't you?"

Honestly there are two sides to comfort ... of course there's physical comfort, which I guess is what she's talking about, and also mental comfort, not having to worry about more things than necessary. But her argument is exactly the reverse of what most people say ... that the hospital is MORE comfortable, while she's saying home is more comfortable. Does she think everyone should get an epidural because birth is incredibly painful? If so how does she think being at home is more comfortable? That's not what I think of it but that's what her logic leads me to think about. That's so different from what I hear most of the time.
