My mom didn't have HB's because my dad wasn't in favor of it, but I was always raised with the mentality that birth was a natural, normal event, and not one to be feared. (my mom always said she loved being preggo, and loved birth!).

I decided I wanted to have a HB after attending my oldest sister's HB, a few months before I was married. It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever witnessed! and I knew that was the way I wanted to have my babies!

DH was very much in favor of the idea, but when I became preggo with my first, we were very new to our area, and I didn't know how to find a HB midwife, so I settled for a CNM in a hospital. It was a wonderful natural childbirth, but in the end, I still wanted to have a HB, so kept looking for a HB MW, and with our second I finally got it! It was amazing, and we'll never go back!
