I have a dilemma. My husband and I are going to start TTC in August and I'm trying to decide on a home birth or not. I would *love* to have a home birth, but I also love my OBGYN. He's an awesome doctor! He's very open and honest with me, gentle (a real plus!), and encouraging. He tells me everything before he does it and is just...a great doc. I wish I could have him deliver my baby at home! I don't know if I should give up the good doctor I know I have now for another midwife that I may not get on with. I had a midwife part way through my first pregnancy and she was just awful. Very strict and didn't believe me when I said I was puking 3-6 times a day. After I had lost 15 pounds by my second trimester she finally went "Oh, you really do need the zofran" and I found my doctor. I'm so stuck. Home birth or the doctor that I know and trust?
