Just wondering of others have done it. My son, now 13 was born at home and my daughter almost 15, was born at a hospital. Both births were successful (resulted in healthy babies) but my sons home birth with a CNM went MUCH more smoothly overall. When my daughter was born, she wouldn't breast feed right away and it took me about a month to get her latched on...we pumped and used "finger feeding" in the meantime. We are not sure what the cause was, but we suspect it was a combination of trauma (by a forceful nurse) and perhaps the birth drugs. I am a firm believer that hospitals are for sick people and pregnancy is not an illness, so I would love to have another home birth if we conceive. Has anyone else done home birth after 35, and have a basis of comparison?
