i've never really had doubts about being able to birth at home.. i gave birth to my 3rd ds at home and all went very well considering his position and all of that... but now i am getting freaked out for some reason.. i just keep getting that "what if something goes wrong" question pop in to my head over and over again.. i think the main problem is that we live pretty far from a hospital.. 25 min to the closest and 30-40 for the preffered hospital.. the thing is.. it was at least 20 min to the closest hospital for my last home birth and that was if driving conditions were good.. no snow/ice and i had him in november in alaska.... but i never had that feeling with him.. i never even worried about it. have you ever had any doubts?! what did you do about them? i keep thinking about renting a hotel room near the hospital or something to birth in but i dont know if that is any more comforting since i would be in an unfamiliar plave... *sigh* i need some help..
