In a hospital? A birthing center? or a at home?
What was your experience like? And do you look forward to the same experience again? (if you plan on having more)
What would you change? And what kind of advice do you have for a women who plans on having a similar birthing experience as yours?

I had Logan in the hospital. I was induced and caved in to the stadol and eventually the epidural too. Logan's heart rate got a little crazy at one point and they had to turn me on my side and give me oxygen. The one thing that I didn't like that I still remember was how they made me push. They had me hold my breath and push as hard as I could with each contraction. It gave me the worst headache afterwards. In the end I delivered vaginally, but it was far from the natural birth I had wanted.
We are having this next baby at home.

My advice would be to:
*Choose a birthing environment where you will be most comfortable (birthing center, home, hospital).
*Figure out which provider aligns best with your philosophy of birth (midwife, OB).
*Research potential establishments where you plan to give birth (assuming it's not at home).
*Learn about the process of childbirth.
These are all things I wish I would have done more thoroughly with my first.
