Re: Dry Homebirth, Water Homebirth or Hospital Birth?

I've had 2 home births. The first was at attempted water birth, but in the heat of labor I didn't like the tub (which is weird, because I'm a HUGE bath person) and ended up having him on our futon. With the second, I decided to go the same route and have him out of water. Both experiences were wonderful. Most people feel that the water helps with the pain, but I found it just wasn't for me. It's worth a try if you'd like to, you could have the tub there and decide in the moment where you want it to happen. It's nice to have options. HTH
