Homebirth with a CPM. I'm still deciding on the CPM - I've got three interviews scheduled over the next couple weeks. After I choose a CPM I will need to bring my DH to meet her and get fully on board. He's still hoping that I'll choose one of the birth centers, I think, but he also seems to realize that I am probably not going to.
freestanding birthing center w/ a mw. Its where I had my
2nd ds and I had a wonderful experience. I'd like to have a homebirth but we rent an apartment and I just don't feel comfortable with it. My 1st was a very unpleasant hospital birth.

I haven't completely decided yet. I figure I have lots of time.. and really, I don't want to have to discuss my birthing plans with any friends or family and have to deal with defending my choices..so.. I claim "I don't know"
Birth #1.. unmedicated hospital birth w/ Doula
Birth #2 .. AROM induction at 5 cm due to ignorance.. otherwise unmedicated/unintervened hospital birth with Doula
Birth #3.. unassisted homebirth w/ Doulas
Birth #4.. unmedicated hospital birth w/ Doula
Birth #5??? I have my thoughts about what we may decide to do but I am open to just experiencing the pregnancy and letting it unfold without being too attatched to any one thing at this point.. I have a lot of postive feelings/energy about this pregnancy similar to how things were with birth #3 (my UC) and I am open to going with what seems best when birth gets here. Clear as mud?
