I did!! It was absolutely WONDERFUL!!! and very healing. I didn't even think about the "risks" during labor...

I woke up around 7:15am, felt a weird strong kick, went to the bathroom and saw that I was losing my mucus plug... I thought it MIGHT be the day, sent DH to work at 7:45 and by 8:15 I made him drive back home because I was in pain and wasn't able to focus enough to get my DD and myself ready for our 9am midwife appt.
Went to the appointment, was there for almost an hour (which I remember VERY little of), was found to be a VERY stretchy 4cm Was sent home with oxygen tanks and a supply bag and told to call as soon as they were to come (hinting at calling within the next 30-60 mins).

Got home, tried the birth ball - HATED IT - tried a shower - HATED IT - and planted myself on the toilet.
I labored mostly on the toilet, called the midwives after the shower attempt and they came right over..... Got pushy, midwife suggested moving to hands and knees on the bed (handson the top mattress, knees on the bottom one - they were staggered like stairs) and I pushed my DS out in 23 mins! He was born at 12:11pm

Excellent birth, exciting experience!

Yes, I had a HBA2C in December with my eighth baby who turned out to be almost 12 pounds! It is possible, it is wonderful. I have had three homebirths out of eight. I would never birth in a hospital again unless it was absolutely necessary.

I have not had a cesarean, but just wanted to let you know that it is a viable option. Good luck!

I've never had a c-section but just wanted to say I think its awesome your going try to deliver naturally at home. So many women just go straight back to the knife because they think they Have to.
