The fifth link above needs to be changed to http://www.texas-midwife.com/safe.htm .

Thank you for compiling this. I'm not looking forward to telling my mother and my MD sister-in-law about our impending home birth. I think I'm going to compile a take-home folder full of information for when they come. I doubt my sister would even want it, but hopefully my mom would take it.

Thanks for the list! I'm hoping I can convince my DH to let me HBAC next time. Both of our moms have worked in hospitals, so we hear all the horror stories of births gone bad (probably because they were in the hospital).

After reading some of the information, I'm beginning to rethink the whole nuchal(sp?) fold testing I had last time in lieu of alpha-fetal protein. Hmmm.

Anyway, thanks again!

I'd like to add: "Obstetrical Myths vs Research Realities".

"It should be a rule in all prophylactic work that no harm should ever be unnecessarily inflicted on a healthy person (Sir Graham Wilson, The Hazards of Immunization, 1967)."

Are their any resources that specifically deal with HBAC?

AWESOME!! THANK YOU!!

My husband always jokes that I need a little business card outlining all of the wonderfulness of homebirth (since I can never put it very eloquently when I'm put on the spot). I seriously may print this out and laminate it to pass out to strangers...
