Home Birth: would you ever?
I am a firm believer that pregnancy & birth are two of the most wonderful experiences in life.
I planned to have my first baby at home, but my labor wasn't progressing (after 21 hrs dilated to only 2cm, contractions 30s apart) and I needed a break. My midwife suggested an alternate route; I opted to go to the hospital where I got an epidural, a chance to recover and continue with a vaginal delivery.
Even though my birth plan changed I was still very pleased with the outcome. I am planning, with my current pregnancy, to do a home birth again. This time around I am much more prepared and at least know what to expect.
I know home birth isn't for many, but I am curious to see how many women actually know about it and don't view it as a negative, midevil thing.
