I chose home w/ a midwife because she will probably be there. But she does Zion births so I'm not worried about her interfering with our UC unless I ask her to

At the hospital where I will be having my third C-Section. Midwives can't attend homebirths in Ky and I can't find a midwife or doctor that will let me V-Bac.

Hospital with a MW and doula...there's no one in the state who will deliver at home : . We could have gotten someone from a neighboring state, but since it's a first baby and I don't know how fast or slow my labor might be, I wasn't totally comfortable with that idea.

BTW, what's a Zion birth?

At home, unassisted. I've actually found a midwife that I feel really comfortable with and am going to for some prenatal care. (I know I could do my own but I enjoy our visits.) I just cannot imagine wanting her at the actual birth. Anytime I try to visualize the birth with anyone except DH being around (midwife, friend, relative) I feel very resentful of their presence.
