If the shutdown lasts for 2 weeks and the debt ceiling gets tied into negotiations what percentage of the Republican House caucus understands how catastrophic a default would be?

Why should all births not happen in the hospital? A friend of mines wife lost a critical amount of blood during a low-risk birth in the hospital. She was lucky to be alive and almost certainly would have died without immediate emergency surgery.
Not arguing against mid-wives or doulas here. Just wondering why people don't want to have births in a hospital?

Yeah, I'm obviously not an expert but far too many people who aren't experts say things like home births are just as safe, which isn't true.

Sure people should have agency as long as there is an understanding and informed consent that you are taking a higher risk having the birth at home. Not a lot higher but still higher.
I see a lot of stuff presented without evidence that home births are just as safe which isn't true.
