I voted M/W in hospital. It's what we did with DS (our only, right now). It was a long, arduous process, and ended in c/s. I may go all the way to planned c/s if I have the same late-term complications I had last time.

My uterus is heart shaped, but it's not bad enough to find it on the 20-week u/s they did (I'll ask about it this time, though). But, by the end, they were asking if I was bicornic. Anyway, bad back labor. DS and I didn't respond well to any drugs. My water was broken for 1.5 days before they intervened at all, but once they do, you're stuck on your back with an IV, so no more yoga, shower, etc. It was icky. It will be easier emotionally to take control of the situation, I think.

But, nothing is decided yet. The m/w who managed my c/s told me everything is still ok for VBAC, and my m/w's do them, so we'll see.

God willing, this will be baby #3 for me. My first was hospital OB/Gyn delivered, my second was midwife-assisted homebirth (wanted it to be waterbirth but my labor completely stopped in the tub). Plan this time, if all goes well, is to have another homebirth, but my wonderful midwife is spending the year in Africa, so I have to find a new one. Very traumatic...
In the process of interviewing now.

We're planning a home waterbirth with a midwife. We had one with #3 and it was wonderful! The 1st 2 were born in the hospital w/o meds - why bother going and being uncomfortable and harrassed if I'm not going to take the meds anyway?

Maya,
At what point in labor did you get into the tub for your waterbirth?

I've had 2 hospital births so far, and this is what we're going for this time. So far, my experience has been good, with the nurses willing to accomodate. I know it's strange at MDC to go the hospital route but I had to giggle when I saw that the option was in italics on the graph. I feel a little left of center IRL so it's always funny to come here and be mainstream girl.

I think the italics show that is how you voted on the poll.
