My first birth was the normal hospital, epidural and horrible recovery. I tore and had stitches that the DR tore out and put back in. Ouchie!!!
Second birth was at home and in the water. It was AWESOME! I had a very quick labor though. Water broke at 3am and he was born at 7:40am. I didn't really get into the water until right before pushing time just because the tub wasn't even filled yet. I had no tearing and my beautiful boy was born quietly and serenely. It was so fast my midwife didn't even make it for his birth!
I will definitely be going for another water birth. It made a huge difference for me.
