Yup I have cuz I dont like all the extra poking and proding the hospital setting has. Also they seem to set a time limit and overuse pitocin to try to hurry you along. Not saying its bad to have a hospital birth cuz sometimes they really do save lives. I just want it quieter and with less anal action cuz id rather not add anymore pain

At home births can be dangerous just because if you have something unexpected happen you won't have the proper care.

I wanted to do a home birth but anything can go wrong during a birth so I decided to do a natural water birth at my hospital. I won't be connected to any iv's or any machines, and I have a midwife rather than a doctor. I love my midwife so much more than my doctor, my doctor is always rushing me around and my midwife is just calm and relaxed and does what I want to do.

I wanted to do a home birth so bad!!! But I was afraid if something went wrong... but as I got farther along I read more and more about it. I may do one with my next, or at least a water birth at a birthing center

I had a home birth two months ago!  It was awesome! They are not dangerous, they havebeen pproven safer or just as safe as hospitals.  Midwives are trained to be abke tospot a pproblem and transfer to a hospital if they need to.

I'd love to do a home birth but hubby isn't comfortable with the idea. I finally talked him into a birth center but something didn't sit right with that for some dumb reason. So back to the hospital it is. But if there's a next time, we'll be either at home or at our local center.
