Tonya says even if the natural birth doesn't work she'll be fine with doing a C-section so she'll know if she's able to do a natural birth or not and she got to try it. The midwife tells Tanya that she is not against the hospital and if Tanya needs to go she will go. The midwife then mensions some reasons why Tanya might have to be transferred to the hospital while she's in labor such as a uterine rupture, or excessive bleeding. Tanya tells the midwife that she has been having a lot of pain. The midwife askes her if the pain comes and goes. Tanya says it's constant. But she may need to do some modified bedrest and if she keeps on doing extra activities that will put her in early labor she won't be able to do a home birth.
