Re: “Midwives seek autonomy in N.C.

You all act like this is something new. These are the same old arguments that have been slung around since I had a home birth in 1983. The bottom line is that women should have a CHOICE how and where to give birth. I chose to have a home birth with my second child because I was traumatized by what happened to me and my baby in the hospital. I planned a home birth for my 3rd child but woke up in the night hemorraging from placenta abruptia. There was no hesitation. We hightailed it to the hospital only to be told by the attending OB that "Maybe this would teach me a lesson". It has been 22 years since that day and it still upsets me. Having my son at home (with a nurse-midwife) was one of the best experiences of my life and if given a choice, I would do it again in a heartbeat.
