 I know it's difficult searching for POSITIVE Homebirth and Natural Birth Stories, ones that DON'T include scary, gory, frightening sadness!!!! So I made a playlist of videos I found on Youtube that I thought were VERY Beautiful and Inspiring. I wanted to share it with y'all.

Not much of a story to tell...but just thought I'd throw out there that I had a great birth in a hospital with a regular OB.  XH mentioned to them discretely that I wanted to try and do things naturally and they were all for it.  Then afterwards they couldn't stop commenting on it.  I don't think it's totally rare at the hospital, but when they see it, they're still impressed.  :)  So...you can still get a natural birth in a hospital.  May not have been the coziest environment, but it wasn't traumatizing or anything and I was darn proud of myself!  And the nurses were very gung ho about nursing and helped me get started with DS right away! 

 

I'm hanging onto that memory as I find myself in the position of switching providers and tweaking our birth plans a bit.  It can be done, and really the L&D staff and OBs didn't go into the field because of a love of performing c-sections.  With research, discussions and a good support system, you can have a fulfilling natural birth in a mainstream setting.  :)  (One day I'd still love to be able to use a birthing center...but I don't have regrets at our planned hospital birth.)

 

Hopefully this isn't a thread hijak.  I just know that sometimes not everything goes according to the perfect plan, and wanted to share that change can still have positive outcomes!

These are great! My own homebirth (my last born) was almost completely painfree! I love reading and watching homebirth videos!

I had a very positive birth experience with my first child.  It was a emergency c-section, but I am not bitter about it at all.  I celebrate that I was able to give birth to a healthy and lively child!
