I had a horrible delivery and no I am not that far along yet but I still want to talk to my doctor about my birthing plan.. I dont want the same birthing experience as last time and I am TERRIFIED about giving birth again. I was thinking about just doing it c-section no questions asked that was what I wanted and NOTHING else well then I had a reply that said something about a water birth.. So NOW I'm starting to consider that. But the thought of no pain meds scares me BIG TIME!! I am a big babby when it comes to pain and I mean I have NO pain tolerance.

So, my questions are.. IF you had a water birth did you enjoy it?? Why or why not? And if you know someone elses story I would like to hear that too.. I want a bunch of different experiences..

Where did you give birth? A birthing center, the hospital, or a house??
Did you have a midwife or did your doctor do it?
How many people besides the hospital staff or midwife staff were in the same room as you when you gave birth and who were they?
And how did it turn out?
My final question is did it end in a emergency c-section and if it did how did they do it?

I was in labor for an hour and 12 minutes, I was on my own, and it was wonderful

All my kids were high risk..so it wasn't an option for me. Can your OB recommend a birthing center so they can review all your options with you?

IF you had a water birth did you enjoy it?? Why or why not? Didn't have a water birth, had planned on it, but when it got down to it I didn't feel like walking the length of the house to get to the other side. I had wanted a water birth because it was my first and it is said to make it less likely to tear and easier on the mother and child... but as I said, when it got down to the end of it, I was too comfy in my bed to move. I would recommend it, a couple other women in my birth class and the mw assistant had a water birth and had only good things to say about it.

well thank you for your reply :) at least I know some people had good experiences haha. I know I would rather give birth in the birthing pool than in my bed haha. I just wouldnt feel right. And I had a bad delivery in a hospital bed.. but Thank you :)
