  • I had a hospital birth & loved it, but I think I would be open to trying a water birth.

  • I would love to have a water birth. I'm a big fan of Baby Story and a lot of the women I see giving a natural birth in water seem to have such an easier time than the women in a hospital giving a natural birth. Plus warm water always makes me feel good. Actually just being in water makes me feel good, unless it's ice cold. The whole atmosphere seems much more calm and relaxed. I'd rather not have all the nurses and people running around making it hard to concentrate on bringing my schild into this world.

  • Hospital b/c if something goes wrong then I'm at the hospital already. With my son, I was in labor for 38 hours and had an emergency c-section, if I wasn't at the hospital we both could have died on the way. So I don't take any chances. i think it would be great to do a water birth but in the even something happens, i don't think it's worth risking. Good luck either way

  • If it was guaranteed that everything would be perfectly fine and normal and my baby would be healthy...I'd do a water birth. But I like the security of a hospital :D
