homr birth info.

Has anyone done a home birth ?, I need some experienced ladies stories about it and info . What are the finances ? What happens after the baby is born ?, do I go to the hospital afterwards ?, I just need some info . Of course I'll further my research. Just wondering if anyone experienced one. I'm really interested.

I'm in UK so can't help with info but I can say I had one with my 2nd and it was amazing. When your in your own home you relax more and the whole labour experience is totally different. I had 2 midwifes present they respected my home and tidied up after themselves.  If anything were to become a problem during labour they will call for help so it's not like your putting yourself and baby in any danger. I had to go to hospital later that day as it's standard here for a doc to check babies fully within in 1st 48 hrs and also for the vitamin k jab but was home in hour or so. Def look into having one i highly recommend.  I would be having a one again if i wasn't due in easter holidays and will have all 3 kids under my feet for 2 weeks. :)

I would say google will be you're best friend. I think they are cool, however if there were a severe emergency you wouldn't be at a hospital to receive any help.  Goodluck if you choose that route & I hope all goes well

Be sure to check out your state laws. In Texas, it is illegal to plan a home birth. We have the option of birthing centers though. They are usually affiliated with a local hospital so that if you or baby need emergency care, you can be easily transported.

Do you think birthing centers will take insurance ?

In WA state birthing centers take insurance so I would assume they do in TX too.
