Yes I agree. I also know some of the hb gone wrong from my area from an OB friend of mine. She had 2 deaths last year alone from patients who opted for hb. One was an infant and one was a mother (separate deliveries). To be fair, there were known health problems with the mother and she was told that it was extremely risky to have another baby period, let alone at home. The baby that was lost appeared to be a normal situation, though. Hearing these things and knowing of things that went wrong with friends' deliveries (in the hospital, and everything was fine) scares me too much. But, you definitely are much more at the mercy of the hospital. I, personally, am fine with that but I know that many people don't trust their hospitals or OBs. It is a very personal decision that, I feel, you should make, OP (not your DH).
