When I got PG with DS2, I thought about trying a home birth again. But then I realized that where I gave birth was not as important to me as who I was with. My HB midwife had recommended to me an OB to use as back up with my first birth. He was and still is a staunch supporter of HB. He had a team of 5 midwives in his practice. When I ended up transporting to the hospital, it was as their patient, so it was all hassle free. I went to a few prenatals before the birth too, and loved all the MW's.
So, when I was PG again and knew my home birth MW had retired, I went to the group of MWs. By then, they were on their own and not with the OB (he stopped doing OB and is now only doing GYN) I got everything I wanted more or less. I wanted a waterbirth, but had the baby before the tub was full!
My 4 day labor when I was younger was a LOT harder to recover from then my fast labor at 39. I never understood those women who could go to the store 2 days after having a baby, till I had DS2! Then, that was me
