We're planning a HB for #2. Our first was a hospital "mostly natural" birth, but not exactly what I wanted. DH would have not been okay with a HB then. But my MW was unavailable at the time and my OB who checked on me a few times during the night didn't make it in time for the actual birth. So it turns out that DH and my labor & delivery nurse did the baby catching work anyways. It was actually the 3rd baby he caught (2 were as an EMT "side of the highway" births) so a birth a home now seems totally do-able. Plus he points out that we are a mile from the hospital. I really like my midwife too and have great referrals of her from friends.
