exactly I am having a hospital vba2c with this baby and I love my provider and the hospital seems great!
The last thing I need is a rude negative person saying I need to watch my back, the hospital staff is only out for themselves and if I really want to succeed I should stay home. ugh

I agree.



And that's fine if someone wants a home birth for the experience, that's the way they want it, great.



Pushing either way is wrong.



But especially when it turns into a "who's more of a woman, and more in tune, blah blah" because they had a home birth, that's when I start seeing red.

I completely agree but before going to that class I felt confident about having my baby and the hospital I am giving birth at and they just sort of made me doubt the whole hospital staff by saying they are basically going.to treat me badly and not listen to me.

It's unfortunate because it does happen, but it happens more when people are afraid to speak up about what they would like.



I would say, take a tour of the L&D floor, see if you can meet some of the nurses, and talk to your doctor if you have any concerns beforehand about what you would like.

Awesome.
Let's push unassisted homebirths on women who will probably go into it without doing ANY research.



Because that's super smart and safe.

Homebirth attending midwives, I think. Usually, midwives are fine as long as they're working within a hospital or birthing center.
