homebirth ?

So what mommies changed their mind after watching "the business of being born"? Beautiful movie/documentary in my opinion.

I wanted a home birth even before watching it, but I read the book she wrote about her experience making the film. If I hadn't been chicken last time (not to mention renting an apartment!) I'd have gone for home birth. But just before I was due I labor say with my sister and watched her beg for an epidural so I decided to go to the hospital just in case.
I also wanted a water birth but I wanted to know I could make it through labor before I spent money on a birthing tub. Now that I've had a pitocen assisted labor with no drugs, I know I can do it again! My hubby is still not okay with the idea of home birth, but he's agreed to tour the local birth centers with me!

My friend 6w ahead of me and myself are both considering it. The documentary got the idea rolling and had me question a lot of assumptions I had about how I "had" to give birth. Our hospital has a natural birthing option, and we feel it's a great option just in case anything goes wrong or I just need help. Good luck!

I am same with doula mommy I considered it before watching the movie. I wanted to have a homebirth with my first but my mind was set on experiencing all types of birthing options so I chose hospital my first and I hated my ob I hated their "protocol" I hated everything. I felt like I was treated as a patient rather then a mother. Love the movie business of being born. Just waiting for my baby to show up any day now so I can experience my homebirth.

The business of being born completely changed my mind and scared me away from hospitals. Everyone i know is being induced at least a week early for NO reason and its so annoying. I hate it. I am having a water birtgh at a birthing center with wonderful midwives. Im 37 weeks today and ao excited to experiencs my labor. Mt birthing center doesnt offer epidural or anything...i cant wait.

I decided to have a home birth before I saw the movie. The movie just made me a lot more confident with my choice.  I'm a first time mom and I'm having a water birth at home.
