5 reasons why I chose hospital birth

hospital birth

Homebirth advocates often feel a burning need to explain their motivation for giving birth at home. It seems only fair that those who give birth in the hospital should offer an explanation.

5 reasons why I chose hospital birth:

1. I wanted a live baby
2. I had no desire to even take even the tiniest risk to my baby’s brain function
3. I had no need to impress other privileged Western white women with faux “achievements,”
4. I actually read the scientific literature, not some lay blogger’s “interpretation” of it
5. I don’t get my medical advice from washed up talk show hosts

PS: Did I mention I wanted a live baby?

That’s why I chose hospital birth. How about you?
