 What kind of experience did you have? If you have any more kids, would you wanna do it differently?

I had a hospital Birth nearly 5 years ago!  My experience wasn't bad.

Hospital and my experience was amazing. Any future children will also be born in a hospital.

I had an unplanned home birth with my first. I actually wasn't "at home" but I wasn't in the damn hospital lol. Anyway....my daughter almost died. Spent a month in the nicu. All because the hospital sent me home when I came in hours earlier and said I was in labor. My next three kids were induced in the hospital. I was not happy at all with the experience, but didn't have a lot of options. Despite everything I feel that home birth is not a good option.

My daughter-in-law planned to birth at home because she comes from a culture where that is normal.  At the last minute my son talked her into birthing in the hospital and it saved her life.  She had a complication that required immediate C-section or she and the baby would have died.  The doctors said they had less than 5 minutes to perform the surgery and if she had been at home she wouldn't be with us now.  

She was in her 20's, healthy, and the pregnancy was uneventful.

I had a hospital birth and it was absolutely horrible! If I'm able to get pregnant again I would love to try a home birth.

I had a hospital birth. It was scary at the end because ds wasn't doing well. But my doctor and nurses were amazing and so helpful when I was having a hard time bfing

I wish I was having this one at that hospital, but it was in texas

Both of mine were born in the hospital.
The 2nd was a c-section and the at-home-c-section kit didn't seem trustworthy.
The 1st was a very traumatic, nightmarish experience (vag) and if I hadn't been in a hospital, I'd be dead.

So yeah, hospital!
