Home waterbirth with a midwife and Doula.

We researched all the options and decided quickly that the hospital was out. We were going to do a birth center, but learned that homebirth is actually safer and easier. The water just seemed relaxing and I'd seem many videos of beautiful waterbirths.

Only about 6 more weeks! Getting excited.

Assisted birth. Although I do fantasize about baby being born before she gets here. LOL My hubby would never agree to unassisted. And really, I'd like the midwife there anyway (even if it's just afterwards to make sure everything really is okay ).

Homebirth assisted with a MW. I just feel safer with a Midwife.

Homebirth (possibly waterbirth) with a midwife because it will be a VBA2C. Hopsital was a guarnteed thrid section, no birth centers or other midwives would take me because of the previous sections and a mild bleeding disorder, but then I found my amazing midwife. Since this will be my first vaginal birth I didn't feel comfortable doing UC, but I have had three dreams now that the labor goes so fast I am completely alone when baby comes, no DH, no midwife, just me and the LO.

We had a midwife assisted birth and I love it. If we have anymore children will most likely have another midwife assisted but have talked about uc

Agree with the above posts about wanting to have unassisted. I talked to my husband about it and he gave that a big, fat NO. Our midwife is an hour away, and it wouldn't bother me if she didn't show up until the last second. It would freak out my husband however. If all goes well with this babe, maybe for the next one...

Assisted homebirth. (There will be one midwife attended + probably one student midwife). I'm not really very anxious about the delivery itself, since my last labor was so fast and I'm anticipating that this one will be as well. I wouldn't mind having an unassisted delivery (although it would freak DH out). I'm hoping that the midwife can help more in terms of all of the post-delivery stuff. On my own, I would have no idea how to deal with the cord and placenta, how to check and make sure the baby is okay, etc. I'll appreciate having her be in charge of that part.

I'm planning a homebirth attended by a midwife. I'm not at all comfortable with an unassisted birth.

I am planning on a waterbirth with my midwife and her assistants. I am not at all comfortable with a UC because with my ds, I had some mild hemmoraging that required some medical assistance.
