My last post (about whether or not a doula is worth it) got me thinking.
Which would you choose:
A) Laboring at home with a doula who then accompanies you to the closest hospital (10 minutes away) where the nurses are uncomfortable with natural births and the OBs are used to delivering women on the bed. You expect resistance from the staff about laboring positions, your ability to do it without pain meds, etc.
Delivering at a well-regarded birth center 45 - 60 minutes away where the midwives are comfortable with natural birth even though there is a high (almost 30%) transfer rate to the hospital across the street. No doula.
