Re: can you tell me more about home births?

Find the books suggested and start looking for a homebirth midwife in your area to interview.

I had a hospital birth with my first and then 2 homebirths with a 3rd planned this October. I will never birth any other way...

Re: can you tell me more about home births?

We're planning a homebirth (due, like, NOW) and I agree with previous posters - know as much about unmedicated childbirth as possible! Know what can go wrong during labor/birth and know your options. Have some heart-to-hearts with your husband about his comfort level and yours - how you imagine birth, how he imagines it, how you feel about emergency situations, etc. Most importantly, find a midwife with whom you are supremely comfortable - she'll be your guide through the experience :-)

My MW gave me a list of what to have on hand and also a kit to order which was more specific stuff all put together from a certain vendor. it is her standard "kit" which had everything she prefers to have. it was a great experience!
