  • I haven't personally, but my next baby will be. I labored 23 hours at home only to be annoyed for the 1 hour I was at the hospital by the stupid nurses. More stress and aggravation than I needed. And I didn't need their help... they were only in the way pissing me off (trying to insert IV's in middle of contractions, shoving thier hands up my vagina with little to no warning, touching me). I wish I could go back and stay my happy preggo butt in my tub at home, lol.

  • I have, I don't want to write it all out here but I did on my homepage on here if you'd like to read it. I loved it, it was peaceful, I had music on and danced and only one other person was with me who gave me some counter pressure near the end... but yeah, I loved it.

  • I had a natural birth in a hosp (no meds, etc)...and have dreamt about having a homebirth someday...but I know I wouldn't get any support for it...and I did love my hospital birth, I had an amazing nurse (just one while I was in labor in the hosp--2hrs), and the only people there were my Mom and my Hubby...and I felt great throughout and after my I suppose I can't complain about it =)

    this woman's birth is in, i think, 9 parts. they're wonderful videos to watch and prepare yourself.
    i haven't had one, but am planning one for the next one.
