Homebirth anyone?

I'm 8 weeks pregnant with my first and I'm planning a homebirth.  Is anyone else planning a homebirth?  My mom is a midwife so I have grown up knowing the benefits of homebirth.  I'm just curious how many people are planning a homebirth.

the birth of my second was planned as a homebirth but it ended as an accidental hospital birth (story is in my journal), my next will be a homebirth i hope and i plan on doing more research on bleeding during labor (i wish i did that). Where i'm from homebirth is normal, about 30% of our babies are born at home and most women in my family have had home births (great grandmother had 6 homebirths, grandmother had 6)

We are planning a water birth in our home with this pregnancy.  I'm hoping everything works out so we are able to.

I will either deliver at a birth center (like last time) or at home. I wouldn't set foot in a hospital for a normal delivery.

I am planning a homebirth, just found out we're preg last week! I sure wish I had a family member that could deliver, I'm still trying to find someone! I might be forced to UC this one!
