I've been seeing an OB and I'm not pleased with him. I've wanted a natural birth (water birth) from the beginning but I know that a hospital is not the best place to achieve that goal. Last week I talked with a midwife, and if insurance covers a little I may be able to afford her but not the birth center. Home seems like such a comfortable place. I'm not sure if I can get DH oh board with the idea. I'm weighing the pro's and con's in my head. A lot of women I've talked to say I am nuts because this is my first pregnancy and I don't know what to expect, anything can happen. What are the chances of hemorrhaging and blood loss? Pain doesn't scare me. That's the only thing that really scares me, what if something goes wrong. But when I imagine myself giving birth in a hospital on my back with a doctor I don't trust, being cut open, everything inside me says "NO".

Have any of you ever had a home birth with your first baby?
