I'm a FTM who just had a waterbirth at home. What an amazing experience
Sending healing energy to everyone who did not have the experience they wished for.

I'm excited about this thread because it will be a nice link in the announcements thread...

I had an assisted HB with one of my four MW present (the others didn't make it on time which is fine with me). My MW was an observer of the birth, she really didn't do anything until after.

Healing hugs to you glendora and other mamas who (like Wildecat said) didn't have the experience that you wished for.

C/S ...2nd one for me.

I voted c/s- both my girls came via c/s.
And at the risk of being labeled a UAV, the second one was the best c/s ever! I got to experience all the fun I missed out on the first time. I am totally and completely satisfied with my surgical birth and outcome....

So I can still vote in this poll when I FINALLY have my baby? I was thinking that there should be an option "In November" LOL.

Well, my "October" babe was born in September, but I still made the poll and voted.

I had an unplanned c/s after 29 hours of labor. I didn't want to write about my feelings in my birth story.

I broke down in tears the day after my birth, feeling like I didn't fight for myself in the hospital. Broken down repeatidly since then with doula, midwife sister. It's hard even though my midwife supported it. My feelings are coupled by the fact that dh and I were thinking this would be our only one and if I did have another lo I wouldn't be able to go to my midwife as her insurance doesn't allow vbacs

I had an amazing birth center birth. I labored (back labor- it was awful!) at home and my wonderful daughter was caught by her daddy in the water after 90 minutes of active labor and 30 minutes of pushing. The birth was amazing, the back labor, not so much.

I had planned to do it unassisted, but I had another c section in the end.

I am totally and completely okay with everything that happened though, and thats what matters (to me).

Had a wonderful unmedicated hospital waterbirth......was definitely a healing birth for me.

The board cesarean rate is sadly still better than the national one.
