I think it's a good idea in case there's a medical reason why you can't go ahead with a home birth or you go over and need to be induced. It's especially good for birthing partners to work out what's what. Being aware doesn't mean that you won't stay firm on wanting a home birth, and not having one doesn't mean you've failed either. Way too many women are hung up on achieving the 'perfect' birth experience. The perfect one ends up with a lovely, healthy baby coming home with you. How you get it is completely irrelevant.

I've planned two homebirths. My youngest was born at at home. I never toured a hospital, or even considered it.

I'm a birth center hopeful this time. I don't plan on touring the hospital I would be going to.
