My homebirth wasn't UC... but my midwife was really excellent and completely hands off! So yes, I caught my babe. Couldn't imagine it any other way since it was just me and babe in the tub- completely in our own world. Dh was there, dd was watching too... but we were really laboring intensely, really in a great groove, and babe just came right out into my hands. Seriously, I couldn't imagine anyone else putting their hands and their energy there at the moment of birth. I really respect unassisted birthing. but, I loved my midwife- who really allowed me to OWN my birth.
