Home Births: yay or nay?

We hear a lot in the feminist community about home births and how great they are; movies like “The Business of Being Born” make it sound like the only natural option for childbirth. But it’s becoming less and less popular world-wide, and many doctors believe that it’s overly dangerous. This article in the Guardian has a good overview of the for and against sides and the dialogue between them; it also has one woman’s experience detailed in depth. It doesn’t really end on a decisive note, although it made me think a little harder about my instinctive yay home birth reaction; what do you guys think? Ps there are pictures yaaaaaaaay!
