Me! My first son was born in the hospital. During my first pregnancy, I thought the "slightly left of center" approach was best. Even though I thought I had surrounded myself with like-minded people (progressive hospital, natural-birth friendly OB with midwife on staff, Bradley birth classes), I still ended up with a completely unnecessary induction at 41 weeks.
I don't blame the OB office, they were just following "protocol." I actually give the Dr. a lot of credit--I'm certain that with a different doctor, I would have wound up with a c-section. My DS was born perfect and healthy, but the ordeal was long and hard and had a serious impact on my body. I had a lot of regrets about the whole experience.
The next time around, I ditched the "What to Expect" books, turned off "A Baby Story," and found myself an amazing homebirth midwife. I had a wonderful second birth at home.
Having experienced both scenarios, homebirth is, without a doubt, the way for me.
