Default Employee vs. Contractor

I was wondering how many of the companies hire actually employees instead of contractors. It might be silly, but being an independent contractor terrifies me as far as taxes are concerned. I've done it once a long time ago, and it made it difficult come tax time. Also, having some kind of benefits would be nice. I work outside the home right now, but I'm pregnant and my job is very physical, so I know that I'm not going to be able to continue doing it much longer, and will most likely have to take a leave of absence. I don't want to put the family in a financial dilemma, and I'm trying to get my ducks in a row. Any suggestions/advice would be appreciated.
