I've had 3 births.
1st--36 hours from water breaking and after one hour of pushing (went to hosp too early, as I was carrying high and they were worried about cord prolapse, long painful unproductive labor, a rest partway with morphine), they decided baby was too big to fit and I had a c-sec. 10'2" baby girl.
2nd--at home, midwife asst, 12 hours of labor to successful home VBAC! 3 weeks early, 8 lbs of baby girl. Tiny tear, no stitches.
3rd--at home, midwife, 4 hours of labor, HBAC again! 9 lbs of baby boy, no tears.
Did I ever love my homebirths! Waterbirth wasn't popular back then. I wish I would've had one or two of those!
