Many women are choosing to give birth at home or in a birthing center, thus leaving the hospital L & D behind.
Some have noted it is due to insurance carries, and the high cost it entails to have a baby in hospital.
Others are wanting a natural birthing process, following a birth plan of their own in a stress free environment.
Whatever you choose, it is best to explore all of your options, and choose the one that fits best for you and your family.
