ya i think many people choose the MW in the hospital, its a nice compromise for lots of women. I loved my home births though, I wont give birth in a hospital again unless its 100% medically necessary.

Its just so nice and peaceful to be comfortable in my own home and then snuggle up in my own bed and really rest. I know i didnt sleep at all in the hospital with Ross, the nurses annoyed the heck out of me and the food sucked too, I was only there for like 21-22 hours after R was born and i couldnt get out of there fast enough

side note though, i have super quick labours, 6 hours, 3 hours 2.5 hours. I had an epi with Ross after about 3-3.5 hours of labour and i have to say it was the bomb seriously awesome! (shhh dont tell the other hippy moms i said that) 3 hours of contractions is about my limit
