My Birth Story: Homebirth And Hospital Part II - At The Hospital

Making the choice to have a home birth is not the obvious choice.  It is not an easy choice.  It is not a widely accepted choice.  And it can be heartbreaking when that plan doesn’t come to fruition.  For me, who truly believed that a home birth was the best thing for my family, I made an equally difficult decision to leave 30 hours of labor at home and go to the hospital for an unknown outcome.  I mean, I knew it was a possibility to go to the hospital and I was not opposed to that, but I honestly thought that wouldn’t happen.
