Finances played a huge role in determining how to birth for me. When dh and I found out we were expecting we discussed a midwife and how we couldn't really afford it and he said "I don't see why we couldn't do it ourselves." So, we did. A hospital birth would have been paid for because of medicaid, but I did not want to birth in the local hospital again. I did however, see an ob for regular prenatal care.
