No doubts and no fears. The thought of giving birth in the hospital again filled me with such dread and anxiety that there was simply no question about it.

You'd have to drag me back there kicking and screaming now that I've had such a beautiful homebirth, and it was SOOOO much better than my hospital ones.

Yes because it was my first time and I didn't know what to expect. No because I had giving birth naturally before and I KNEW I did not want to deal with the hospital.

I had no doubts. But I read up on the subject... A LOT and the Bradley teacher was very, very prohomebirth and talked to me about everything.

NO doubts. If I had a fear I researched and asked my midwives for guidance. I found an answer to put that fear to rest.

the closer I got to my due date, the less fearful I became. I had no doubts.

I believe your labor will be the most successful where you feel the most comfortable.

No doubts or fears about my boy's ability or my minds, only the fear that my IL's will show up.
