I'll be at home again, the 2nd birth at home for me and 3rd birth.
Buried the placenta last time but I'm looking into encapsulation this time, though DH is a little wigged out by it.
I think I'd enjoy laboring in the water but I don't trust the cleanliness of our water. We use a rain catchment system (from the roof, through the gutters and into a tank outside) and it's not clean enough to drink. Because we use this system, we also have a limited supply of water and it's possible that we just wouldn't have enough to do a pool full of it during that time of year. I think I'll try to remember to get in a warm shower this time around, though.
DH is a great support during labor and we both really like my midwife, who I just had a phone appointment with yesterday. I talked with her about keeping track of my weight, blood pressure and doing the urine test strips that test for protein, sugar and a few other things at home so I don't have to pay for so many appointments with her. We'll be scraping just to pay for the birth, so gotta keep the visits to a minimum.
I'll have my mom here again to help with the kids (most likely to wake them up when it's time. I had both my babies at 1:30am), to take pictures or video and whatever else. She was a big help last time and she loved being a part of it.
