Considering a home birth

My midwife said she would charge $25 for the use of her La Bassine waterbirth tub and would just have to buy a liner for it. It all depends on what kind of $ we have towards the end to maybe rent a more expensive tub that keeps the water heated. She said some women don't even like the water and it's a waste of $ so that's an argument for the cheaper.
I just feel so comfortable with the choice to stay home. Hospitals are just so sterile. I might have to give my neighbors some warning though when the time is near. I don't want them calling the police when I start moaning.
I'm also coming at this from a POV that I may want only want one child. I want to make the most of the experience the first time around. I feel like I am learning so much and am not being just talked at like the OB/GYN did with me.
Good luck with making your choice! These women in the boards have been great help to me.
