With my due date less than four weeks away, we are nearing the end of this pregnancy journey and are very ready to meet our son. I’m also eager to have labor, delivery, and recovery behind me. Mr. Handsome and I have chosen to deliver our baby at a hospital under the care of a nurse midwife. I have had a few minor complications during pregnancy that likely won’t cause any issues during labor, but in case something comes up, we like the idea of having access to emergency care.
We feel very comfortable with our midwives, and we are praying that my delivery will be smooth and uneventful. I will say, however, that I am someone who really enjoys the comforts of home, so the idea of a home birth sounds very appealing. In today’s society, I love that there are so many delivery options for expectant moms, and I’m curious to hear what your thoughts are. Midwife or doctor? Home birth or hospital birth? What is your birth plan of choice, and what are the pros and cons?
