After Amie Norris gave birth to her son in the hospital, she said she'd never go through that again.  But when she switched to at-home births, she said it was a life-changing experience, and she couldn't wait to give birth again.  But many obstetricians advise against the practice and say there's the risk something could go wrong.  A local mother, a midwife, and an obstetrician weigh in on the pros and cons of at-home births, and why more women are considering having their children outside of hospitals.
