Water Birth - Page 2

Hi All, Visiting from April DDC

A 'Homebirth' dosen't necessarily have to take place at your home! When we were looking around for options (as we still are) my husband and I were thinking, why do a home birth here? We just live in a dumpy rental, we have no ties to this place. Then someone said that here friend was 'homebirthing' at another home. One with a birthing tub, a fireplace, etc. Maybe you have a good friend or relative who you'd be comfortable with, that would host your homebirth?
Just a thought

Umm... that's a nice thought... but I'm really not comfortable doing that. The reason I like the idea of a true HOMEbirth is so I am already at home, and don't like to be around alot of people or strange (or not so strange) places when I don't feel good. I like to be home. When I have a cold, I just want to be at home with my husband. The thought of borrowing a house for the birth... sounds really odd to me.. and very uncomfortable. Thank you very much for your suggestion, but if I chose to do this at home, home is where I'll be.

Yes, they are completely differnent. Your labor will be less intense with a water birth and overall you will have a 100% experience with water birth...unless that is you don't like water. )

I'm doing water birth next!! I did labor in a shower with #1 even that was wonderful.

I spent a good amount of time in the shower during labor as well.
