Hi everyone, I'm new but glad to see so many are into home and natural birth. I took the servey. It was incomplete in my opinion but I did my best to make up for it in the 'comments' section. I briefly compared my A.B.C. experience, which was actually good compared to most hosp. births to my home birth experience. The Doctor made the A.B.C. somewhat stressful which I attribute to a long labor (36hrs.) compared to 5hrs, mostly easy labor, at home five years later with a very un-intrusive midwife and my husband, some friends and my first child.
