I'm planning on an unmedicated hospital birth. I'd LOVE to have a homebirth but the thought makes DH very scared so we go to the hospital. We have a great hospital though and they are very helpful w/ going med free and very willing to support a Mom who wishes to do so.

First babes and we're planning a birth center birth. So far everything has gone as smoothly as possible, so unless little Glory starts feeling "flippy" or they just can't wait until May to meet me - it looks like there shouldn't be a problem with it!

*granted I spent a large portion of the 28-32 week period preparing myself mentally for a hospital birth or c/s if they became necessary... now that I've dealt with that, I'm pretty sure neither will happen!*

I am planning a freestanding birth center birth with my midwife, DH, and 2 doula's in training.

I was originally planning to birth at a birth center but now have to go to another state for a hospital birth so my baby can have heart surgery. I'm really hoping it will be unmedicated but the hospital c-section rate is 25% so I'm hoping for the best!
If we have child #3 then I will hopefully get my dream out of hospital water birth!

HBAC in our temporary home with a midwife (CNM).

Baby #6, planning a home/water birth. This will be our 3rd home birth

I had an unmedicated/ non-intervention (is that a word?) hospital birth with DD and I am planning to do the same this time. I looked into homebirth, but I am so attached to my hospital midwife that I couldn't make the change. She is awesome and patient and does things naturally.

I wrote I don't have any plans yet, but I really do they just vary so much depending on the situation

I want a homebirth with a midwife, but we might end up in the hospital with the midwife either way I"m confident it will be med free

planning a hb with a mw

Planning on UC, but since I've never labored before I am open to the possibility that I may decide that I want more company/support than just DH so it could end up as HB w/ MW. I won't know until I get there.

I am one of the two who is having a C-section. I am happy that my doctor agree to letting me go 1 day after my due date. I really hope that I go into labor on my own, so I know she is ready.

I am planning on using both a birth center and the hospital. I am planning a VBAC. The local CPM does not do primary VBACs so I hired her as a monitrice and will be able to labor at her birth center. Then when it is time to push we will transfer to the hospital to push the baby out. We feel this is the best way to get my VBAC and my doctor is fully supportive of this. In fact she is the back up OB for my midwife so they work closely together, even share an office!

Then as long as everything works out this time, we will have a homebirth with our midwife for the next baby in a few years!
