For the natural, water birthing type? I am 99% sure I would not birth in a hospital but I would like to talk to an OB about my records regarding my last birth. Thanks!

I am not sure I understand - you want to birth at home and have an OB discuss with you? A midwife could look at your records, couldn't they?

Well see, I don't think my midwives accurately recorded what happened..I've talked to other midwives about it and they seem to agree that my midwife didn't take it as seriously as they should have.<br>
I'm having serious doubts about whether or not I should home birth so I want opinions from both midwives and OBs (not cut-happy ones). I already have a few midwives to talk to but no OBs.

I have no experience with them, but I wonder if the obs at Mercy or Maryland General would be able to help. They have midwive programs, but overall MD general has the lowest c-section rate, and I had Mercy OB has less intervention than most. This is all stuff I have heard, so I don't know if you could take my word with it.
