I've had two hospital and one home births. DS2 was a hospital birth (VBAC) and it was pretty great! As long as you have a solid birth plan that plans for pushy interventions, you should be fine. Some things I'd mention/be aware of: drug plan, asking for skin-to-skin time right after, vax plans, episiotomies (my doc almost cut me without asking until my doula said something), making sure you can birth in any position you want, having baby room in with you, etc.
