I'm planning on having a homebirth..and I'm hoping my recovery will be a lot better than my epidural/induced labor.
the afterpains are worse (when your uterus shrinks back to it's normal size) but it only lasts for the first few days, it's not that bad really. It was more that they told me it would be worse so I noticed it more, so otherwise it wouldn't have seemed as bad as what it was. Other than that it was an easier labor for me so overall I recovered quicker. HTH
