Dh and I had a talk tonight...about home birth. When we've talked about it in the past he was always really quick to shoot me down, but this time he actually talked to me about it. I told him that if we get pregnant again, one of two things WILL happen, I will either give birth at home OR he will grow a spine and "turn into the protective alpha male wolf" and we will go over every last detail of what could/might happen during a hospital birth and he will know what I will and won't tolerate and he will fiercely protect me in my choices. That comment led into the discussion about home birth and he was actually receptive to it. I was so happy as I was expecting to be shot down again. I told him that if we do a home birth, I need him supporting me 100%, that I wouldn't be able to do it without him. He sort of snickered at me and I laughed and said "well, yea... physically I could do it... but it would be much easier to do with your support."

I can't believe (assuming we get pregnant) that I might actually have a birth experience that I don't cringe over when I think about it. Cross your fingers that we can keep having these types of conversations that will get us toward the goal of having a natural child birth (preferably at home, but if not.... a non-medicalized child birth).

I'll keep you ladies posted LOL

Of course, we have to get pregnant first but we're working on that lol

My DH and I had the same experience together. It wasn't even a thought because I've had two c sections. After I had two in the van we decided we could handle that again. So we had our last one at home, expecting number eight and certainly plan on having this one at home too.

Hope that it will work out for the both of you, because you will both love it.

I'm glad you will be getting the birth experience that you want I would've loved a non medical birth, but unfortunately all of my pregnancies end up having complications. GL!!

I hope everything works out!

I have been lucky my 8 full term births were AWSOME exactly as I planned and even though I lost 2 babies in 2nd tri my last loss was exactly how I wanted to the birth baby.

Yes, I've given birth to two in my van, and both were unassisted births. One I made it to the hospital parking lot before "I couldn't hold it anymore", the other was in a huge snowstorm, and I only made it about halfway to the hospital.
