I've experienced first hand laboring the entire time in a hospital,t he time limits, the stress, the heightened pain due to being in uncomfortable environment treated rudely by nurses and tied down to a bed. I'm laboring at home for as long as possible!
Yep this is me as well. While I'd rather go to a hospital that's about 30 minutes away, in a pinch there's one a LOT closer that could handle an emergency section if it became absolutely necessary.
