Re: Ideal birth setting
For me, the ideal would be home. Wanted to do it with #2, but he went into distress (dropped heart rate during contractions), so ended up in the hospital with a c/s. With #3, they said I had to be in a hospital to watch out for ruptures, and even though I successfully VBACed, now, in my mid-40's, have been told I should go to the hospital because of my age. Sigh.
