This will be my first natural, but I really don't think there is ANYTHING that could ever make me want to deliver in a hospital again.

I dont have children, and i dont plan on having any for awhile yet but my perfect birth would be a natural water birth at home or in a birthing center. I dont see anything wrong with delivering in a hospital, they have improved alot over the years and are not alot calmer and relaxed than many people think and most maternity wards are run by midwifes so there are alot of natural births there, although with me hopefully working in a hospital delivering babies i would like to have a bit of a change and deliver at home with candles, music, with my partner, my mum, his mum and midwife if i need one.

I plan to have a natural child birth with every one of my children. I have a lot of regrets about not giving that to my first. I am sorry that your first NCB experience was awful for you. Perhaps if you want to do it again, you could look into Bradley Method classes, or read on better relaxation tools and pain management without drugs. It doesnt have to be an awful experience, it can be beautiful and rewarding. I wish you the best of luck, and even if it is painful and hard you are doing what is best by giving your children a drug free entrance into this world!

I had one shot of morphine with my first which I am STILL disappointed about! I was planning to go drug-free, but the nurse had just informed me that I was only 5cms after 8 hours of labour. I couldn't imagine it taking another 8 hours to go the last 5cm. Nobody told me that the last 5 usually go much faster (it took 20 minutes). Transition hit, I panicked, and got the shot. It did nothing, and I was soon pushing. I really regret that one stupid shot.

Went drug-free with #2 in hospital.

Had our first water homebirth with #3 and will be doing so again. I hope I never, never, never, never have to deliver in a hospital again! You'd have to drage me there kicking and screaming (ok, of course I would go if there was some complication that made it necessary, but not by preference!) At the time, I didn't think it was too bad - but after my homebirth, I changed mind. Compared to home, the hospital experience TOTALLY sucked!

I have done two natural hospital births and one homebirth. IF I have any more children I will stick with homebirth! I wish i had done it with my other ones as well!!
