Anybody have a home birth?

Anonymous

I am considering a home/water birth this time around as I'm pregnant with my second. Would love to hear other people's experiences.

    I did and it was amazing! Although I can't compare it to a hospital birth, as both my births were at home. But home birth midwives are great at letting you control just about every aspect of your birth, and it's a very low-stress way to do it. For our second, he was born at night and our 2 year old slept the whole time so we didn't even need a babysitter

    I've had 4 hospital births and 1 home birth. I'd absolutely choose home birth when it's in my power. My last 2 I had to transfer care at the least minute due to breech position and going past 42 weeks (both rule out home birth). But I totally love how comfortable home birth is, midwifery care (including postpartum) and the ease of not having to leave in labor.
