Two articles on home birth today on msnbc.com. The first is your standard article with lots of doctors saying they don't think it's safe etc. Although it does mention the increase in home births lately. The second is a refreshing take from Mayim Bialik.
I just finished reading both & was going to come here to share as well lol The first one made my eyes roll - it's obnoxious how threatened OB's are by homebirths. They would go a lot further if they would set the ego's aside & be more willing to work with women & midwives. The 2nd article was a much nicer read
