Regarding natural birth, I would recommend a second or even third look. I was a low risk mother who ran into trouble. If I had not been in the hospital and with an IV, I would have left my husband with a toddler and a newborn. Maternal death was shockingly high at one time. I don't want to go back to that time.

Actually, flying out of KCI four years from now will be about the same as today, except the building will be newer.
There'll still be around the same number of flights with the same mid-size aircraft, and no more direct flights because the passenger boarding count will be about the same as now.
There'll be no international flights except maybe to Mexico or Canada, because KC is still between Chicago, Dallas, and the two coasts where airlines will continue to fly their smaller aircraft from KCI to help fill their larger airplanes for international travel.
There'll be a total lack of oversight and supervision by KCMO elected officials of operations and maintenance of the new building and, given its "modern" construction, it will begin to deteriorate from the date it opens.
And there'll be lots of new debt as far as the eye can see.
