Well, girls, thanks! Really just the exercise of writing it all down helped me decide on the birth center. I also realized, "Geeze, I'm worried about a wheelchair ride at 8 cm and I'm considering driving to a hospital at the same stage? WTH?!?" So I think we're doing it. I'm going to a "meet the midwives" next week. Looking forward to it! Thanks again!
Good choice. I had one car ride and one ambulance ride in labour - both were horrible!!! It was so nice not going anywhere in labour during my homebirth!
