Where will you birth your next baby? In a hospital, birth center, home, other? Why?

We will be going to a birth center for this baby because I realized after having my son just how hard it was to not get interventions with the people there constantly breathing down your neck. Plus, this birth center has birthing tubs that I'm so looking forward to using. I can't wait!

We're planning our water birth (happy dance!) a tthe birthing center that is part of one of the local hospitals in our area. It is the only hospital in North GA to offer water births. My midwife wants us to take the water birth class at the birthing center soon.
I have delivered my first 2 at hospitals - 1st was full of interventions due to induction and 2nd was natural (had an awesome general pract/OB).

Well I am going to have my current baby in the hospital that I work at. I have chose the hospital setting because it is an award winning NICU. I know that I am being a little paranoid but I would rather be closer to a hospital in case something were to go wrong. If I wanted I could use the birthing center that is within the L&D unit where they focus on natural birth and birthing tubs. L&D and the birthing center are on the same floor in case anything were to happen. Most likely when we have another child, we will also be having that one in a hospital.

I think I have DF sold on the idea of a birth center once we do get pregnant. I've used the DVR to record A Baby Story and have showed him different shows, in birth centers and in hospitals. I know it's not the most realistic show, but it worked for what I needed it to do! He seems much more on board with the idea of the birth center.

Hospital.

There are no birthing centers any where near me .. and I'm a really bad bleeder so a home birth is out of the question.

There aren't any birthing centers within a decent traveling time from our home, so we are delivering at a hospital. Luckily for us, the doctors that deliver there are very attentive to what the patient wants and don't try to force drugs on you. It's also the only place that my Dr delivers, but I'm totally okay with that.

Last time we were in a hospital b/c we didn't have a choice of a birthing center, and Dh couldn't have delt with home birth. Next time we will be at home, and he is more excited about that than I am!!

The closest birth center to me is about 40 minutes to 2 hours (depending on traffic). I'm considering it but Lily was born in about 6 hours of active labor...only 3 at the hospital. I'm a little worried about how quickly the next baby will come. I'm considering doing it at home as well...but need to think more about that. I bled a lot after Lily and they almost needed to do surgery, so I'm worried about that as well.

This one will be in a hospital, but the next will most definately be in a birthing center. I'm really nervous about this hospital because 90% of the moms in labor get epis. I def do not want to feel pressure from the nurses or other staff that I "have" to get an epi. Hopefully no one puts that pressure on me

This one will be a birth center. The one after this (if we have another) will be at home, and I'm hoping DH will be on board with it at that point.

In a birth center, as long as the pregnancy remains as it is. I am hoping for a med free L & D. And my midwife said no IV or fetal monitoring if I'm doing ok. And I can get there when I'm dialated at 2 and stay and use the birth tub and other items

Hospital (no birth centers around here). But the 2 midwives that I see deliver 99% of all babies in the area, and they pretty much run the L&D ward at the hospital. Whatever they say, goes. And they're completely natural birth advocates, so I'm all set!

I'm hoping, praying and working for an uneventful pregnancy so that I can birth this little bean at home. I don't know if it will be a water birth or not, it depends on how the mood strikes me. We do have a big garden tub that fills really quickly.

probably a homebirth. But we'll see when it comes time to decide. Several factors will be going into the decision. For example, WHERE to put a birth tub. And the only homebirth midwives I know of in this area dont' accept any insurance, so we'll be paying out of pocket. And the birth center just moved to a larger facility so I want to do a tour and look at the new center.

I am still undecided between a birth center and a homebirth. I don't have insurance, so we will be paying out of pocket anyway, unless by some miracle I can get on state. That will partly effect the decision. Also, unless I want to have a party going on around me while I birth or have no one there, I really only have my front room to put the tub. So we'll see. I have awhile to decide anyway, but right now I am leaning toward homebirth.
