First: Hospital. I didn't know there was any other way. Quick birth. No problems!
Second: Hospital. I thought about a midwife, but there wasn't one in my community and my first hospital birth was great, so another didn't bother me. I ended up 6 weeks early with a very, very sick baby who spent almost 4 weeks in the NICU at a hospital 1.5 hrs from where I delivered.
Third: Hospital (first surro-babe). We talked about a HB and IPs were very much wanting one also, but I was pregnant with twins which cannot legally be a hb in my state. I ended up losing one between 15-18 weeks, and needed follow-up until mid around 30w to be sure that things were going okay as I hadn't passed the lost baby. By then, we decided hospital was our best bet.
Fourth: Hospital (twins again!). Carried to term, huge babies, naturally delivered in the regular room not the OR.
Fifth: Hospital. Singleton. I now lived extremely rural. Closest medical care of any kind was basic ER 30 miles away and closest midwife or OB was 60-90 miles in the other direction.
All of the births were natural, drug-free, and at the hospital. I had great experiences each time. My fifth never left my sight, we coslept at the hospital, and they did delayed cord clamping, didn't bathe/weigh him until hours later when we were ready. Very respectful--especially considering that my doctor couldn't make it, and I met my delivering OB for the first time less than an hour before pushing him out.
If I had it to choose again, I don't know if I would choose differently...I would defnitely love a homebirth I think! But, I don't know if that will be possible and transport of an hour or more (or a helicopter ride for an extreme emergency) just doesn't seem 'fun' in labor!
