I'm such a laid back, easygoing person so this is hysterical in hindsight.
So for anyone who has birthed at home:
Did you have anything on hand that would take abuse during labor? Did you break anything?
Any suggestions on how not to destroy your house?
( I am worried for my towel bar already)
Last time we had a pull up bar that my hushand uses and I found stretching and "hanging" (my feet were on the ground of course) helped a lot. It also helped to get the baby very low, almost to crowning. This time I am using the bar again, but will attach a thick soft rope to it, maybe with a couple knots. I will have more positions available to me with this plan (like sitting on the yoga ball).
Of course the great thing about being at home is you have endless options.
