You didn't allow for multiple selections, but your choices don't really fit either of my births anyway. I voted other.
#1 was born in the hospital operating room ('nuf said).
#2 was a homebirth away from home, in the bed. Not really a birthing center, except as far as my insurance is concerned.

Claudia, I've really got to see a picture of that!!

All 3 were in bed at a hospital.

#3 was a birth center transfer, would've been in bed there if things hadn't gone south with the labor (meconium).

ds #1, birth center in bed.
dd #2, at home, in an aquadoula in my bedroom.
ds #2, at home, in an aquadoula on the back deck, although potty pushing felt so good I might have stayed there, without prompting to get back in the tub!

I voted "other" for my last birth, which was at home, on the floor near my bathtub. My first was at home in bed, my second was at home in a birthing pool, my third was at home on the floor of my living room.

#1 in birth center in supported squat (regretfully got out of bath for unnecessary episiotomy)
#2 wanted a homebirth in water, but i ended up birthing in the shower at a public place. -- had a regularly scheduled appt with midwife who was temporarily working out of the massage room at a mom & baby center (like a community center where there are classes from belly dancing to how to wear a sling and natural parenting - not a birth center by any means!)- I didn't realize i was so far in labor, no time to go home!

maybe next time i'll get the waterbirth!?
