I would seriously consider it but the nearest hospitals are not options for me. Last time I chose midwives and birthed an hour away and loved the care there, so ill be returning to them this time around. Birth center within a hospital with midwives- natural birth. It was the best of both worlds- I was so comfortable there I wasn't anxious to leave. It felt like a hotel!

The other issue with home birth for me is our health insurance won't cover any of the costs so the midwife and supplies would be out of pocket as opposed to fully covered like at the hospital.
