I had an unmedicated hospital birth with my first DD and a homebirth/unassisted birth with my 2nd DD. The first labor was roughly 3.5 hrs and she was born within 10 mins of arrival at hospital. My 2nd DD, my husband delivered while on the phone with home midwife. With this one, I am just praying that I don't miscarry and I'll take it from there. My goal is for a healthy baby and healthy pregnancy. I just turned 40 so am in a higher risk but realize that it's all statistics. That said, if everything remains as in my previous preganancies, I would love to have a homebirth. Then I just need to figure out how to afford it... most are around $4K.
