At my age (44) with twins, there's not much choice. I'm happy to be birthing in a hospital when the time comes. But I am planning to deliver vaginally. I'm not interested in a C-section, unless, at that moment, the babes are upside down and sideways to make it impossible. My goal is to actually deliver. Hope that works out as planned.

If we had baby in hospital, we would just need one person to watch both kids, and it could pretty much be any of our family or friends. If we had baby at home, I would need one person for each kid since my daughter would most likely want to be in and out during the birth, and we would need someone else to stay with my son when she's in with us. The person with my daughter would also have to be comfortable being at the birth, which rules out a bunch of the friends. Make any more sense?
In Alaska, it's illegal to VBAC with a midwife, so I'll be w/ an OB at the hospital. *sigh* Unfortunately, the hospital here *sucks* and you can't bring your own birth tub. Grrrr.
