Instead, we had everything we needed, it was peaceful and, even though we were in shock at a 40min labour, just about perfect. Now DH likes to joke that he is pretty much a doctor as he delivered the baby. I think if we were to have another, we'd be on the same page about a home birth.
Oh my gosh!! You are both amazing! Hope your little one is well. Congratulations on your baby and an incredible birth story!
