now that i've made a deposit for the birth center and have had to look for another obstetrician (my regular OB refuses to back up), i've become a touch nervous about not being in a hospital. of course, my OB gave me the scare speech about what can go wrong, especially with the baby. i guess i'm feeling a touch vulnerable at the moment and didn't appreciate the "what can happen" speech. my husband assured me that the reason she sees worst case scenarios is that that's just it - transferring can be the last resort, so to speak.
has anyone had successful home or birth center births who can reassure me? thanks!
