Hospital for us, with VBAC friendly ob, the DH and doula. We're having a boy with a 50/50 chance of a bleeding disorder, so we need to be right near a NICU and the hematologists. But the ob is great, to my continual surprise (he delivered an irritable speech on the idiocies of the chicken pox vax!) - and a former subscriber to Mothering...he stopped because his patients would complain from time to time. And I adore the doula. Woulda preferred a birthing center and m/w (had both picked out in case the baby turned out to be a girl), but having seen my son need urgent care for bleeding, I'm willing to be reluctantly sensible.
Hoping for a VBAC, the ob and doula think it's extremely likely, hoping for drug-free, hoping to spend a good chunk of labor at home with the kiddo. Determined to win the b'fing before cord gets cut argument. But the best-laid plans, ya know?
