Here the protocols are such that at 42 weeks, you must transfer care (away from awesome homebirth midwives to random OB).
You and I have the same due date, and are kind of in the same boat! My own decision is to attempt an induction at home (castor oil and AROM) for a chance at a homebirth, on the last day possible (if it should come to that). Then if it doesn't work I can still be attended in the hospital by my same midwives that day.
But then I tend to stay pregnant a long time. My previous 42-weeker was definitely NOT underdone or "just" at term, too, so I feel comfortable doing this. I can see why someone else would make a different decision.
