This is not a new revelation, I risked out of homebirth after my 3rd child (I had #1 and #3 at home). I had hemorrhaged with all 3, but the 3rd was severe. I had my 4th in a hospital, and it was a wonderful birth where I was left alone, and my baby was left alone, and all was well. But, one of my best friends is due just a couple of weeks before me, and she will be having her 5th homebirth (I got to catch the last one ). I really wish I could have another homebirth. Part of it is nervousness that I am in a new area, with a new midwife I don't really know yet, and I haven't been part of the birth community (and haven't doula'd at all here) long enough to know for sure about this hospital. I only know that I've been told by several that it's the only hospital to go around here if you want any kind of say in how your birth goes.
