I'm planning a Home Birth in Feb of this year and the winters here in MN can get pretty brutal. Everyone's major concern about me having my first HB with baby #3 is the fact that I live in the country 30 min from the hospital and am due in winter. I have not received positive feelings from anyone other than my midwife and husband about my choice of HB. I don't have the support system that I envisioned. I stopped talking to people about it because now I'm starting to even doubt myself that I can have a safe HB. Is 30 min too far if something goes wrong or should I trust in my body that everything will go fine?

We are thinking about moving 30 min from the hospital out to the country, and I'm due in Feb. Here is what my midwife told me: It is just as safe to give birth at home as it would be to drive to the hospital on snowy winter roads. I think 30 minutes is about my limit of how far I want to be, but it's not impossible.
