How many of you have had Home births either with a mid wife or by yourself?

I may research it but I am pretty sure it wont be a good idea because of past issues. With my daughters birth I had a seizure after I had her.

I am thinkinh about my options since I really don't want to be in the hospital in the bed the whole time like last time.

I am only 10 weeks and 6 days so I have a little time.

I want one but can't have it. I live in indiana and midwives are illegal. Certified nurse midwives are fine but they don't do home birth around here. The nearest birth center is 2 hours from me. That doesn't work because I have fast labors. So I'm stuck going to the hospital.

All four of mine were born at home. The first two were midwife attended. The second two were freebirths.

Do you know what caused the seizure after your daughter's birth? Did you have any medications during labor? You may be just fine at home depending on the circumstances surrounding the seizure. It wouldn't hurt to meet with some midwives and talk about everything. :)

Congratulations on your pregnancy. :)

My first was failed epi in a hospital. 2nd was completely natural, no interventions in a hospital. The next will be at home midwife attended.

I would prefer one unfortunately if I had one here it would be unassisted. We don't have midwives in my area.
