What made you choose homebirth?

Not enough cyberspace to write all the reasons...

But a quick summary is that we went on a hospital tour back in December(when I was about 7 weeks) and I literally had a panic attack.
The hospital felt like a jail to me. In fact the first thing they did was tell us about all the secruity cameras and alarms and buttons to get in the dang door.
My husband nearly carried me out of there because I was shaking and crying so much. He drove me around the corner to a birth center which I really liked, but later we met with a midwife who suggested homebirth...

We're very happy with our decision.

My previous hospital birth sucked. Wasn't going down that road again unless I had to. It had everything to do with safety of me and my child.

I'm not pregnant yet...but I've always considered home birth, my mom had 4 out of 5 of her kids at home, so I've heard all about it my whole life. But with my first, I was nervous and really liked the hospital and my OB. Well, the hospital and OB ended up being horrible. They pushed pit because I wasn't dilating past an 8, so I spent 8 hours putting them off then ended up with an epidural, and it went downhill from there!

I know in the right setting I could have made it without the epidural. I was handling the pain ok, I was just completely exhausted after 28 hours of labor, and the nurses were no help.

We've met with midwives and I've found one I LOVE, so now we're just waiting for the baby!
