Trendy? HHHMMMM let's think about this. Women have had babies at home alone or with midwives, doulas, doctors who did house calls etc. for thousands of years. Women started having babies in hospitals say 150 years ago. So, what's new and "trendy?"
And putting the process of birth, before the goal of having a baby? It was my goal to HAVE a baby. Instead, my baby was surgically ripped out of my stomach, while I lay pinned down and in tears, because baby was breech and my "labor wasn't progressing." Which essentially meant that it was 5 and the doc wanted to go home for dinner. Labor might have "progressed" had I not been transfered to the hospital, because the midwives couldn't legally deliver a breech baby, even though they had experience doing it. Labor might have "progressed" if I wasn't crying and scared.
The goal is to have a baby who is born peacefully, feeling safe and secure, and welcome into the world. And yes, the occasional circumstance comes up where that is not possible, in which case the goal changes to having a baby who is at least alive and healthy. But the doctor's goal is to make money and have live, healthy babies regardless of emotional condition or mother/baby bonding, and to not get sued. And they make money through more interventions. So, when the way they get paid changes, I'll consider trusting them.
