I'm a staunch supporter of homebirthing, but have never gone that route myself-- my two kiddos were born in the hospital, with me on an epidural. I'm now pregnant again (yay!), and am finally considering a homebirth. We interviewed a midwife a few days ago, and she was really great-- we like her a lot. The one thing that worries me is that she's only attended 65 births. I'm fretting that if I have some kind of complication, she won't be experienced enough to catch it in time, and my baby or I will be injured or die.
I should also say that we're about 20-25 minutes away from the hospital, so if something does go wrong, we won't get there in time.
These fears are frightening enough that I'm considering going the hospital route again. I know that the vast majority of births are normal, and I myself am low-risk, but... the stakes are so high. If something does go wrong, I would never forgive myself.
