I think he is uncomfortable with going to a Birthing Center for some reason. I am working on him though. LOL. I did find a hospital that does water births. I am stoked. It is 30 to 45 mins away though. Is that excessive? I think I could cave to a hospital birth there. Then if I chicken out again I have the option of an epi. I do know now that I want a midwife so that I can try for the natural birth I want. I am having a hard time finding midwives around here though. It there is a nurse practitioner/midwife at a doctors office do you still have the chance someone else would deliver the baby?
