I am still confused about where to deliver. I spoke to a midwife at a birthing center and they seem to have medical meddling there too. For example, they require a GD test and and Group beta strep test. If you test positive for strep - they put you on antibiotics IV every 4 hours of your labow. Thats quite unneccessary as the chance of baby getting it from mom is negligible and I am highly allergic to antibiotics. I did not want to take the GD test really but if that was the only thing, I could live with it.

My OB had recommended a home birth. My baby is currently breach and I have a low lying placenta. Both these conditions can easily change by the time I deliver though. I called and left a message for a home-birth midwife. I figured no harm in just talking to her.

I don't know what the birth center could offer that a regular L & D couldn't - the only difference seems to be no epidurals.

Please advise.
