My first was a homebirth. It was a really wonderful experiance! He was posterior though, and had shoulder dystocia.
My second was a birth center (lived to far away for MW to drive). He was also posterior. We ended up transferring to the hospital, where I had him naturally after 2 more hrs of labor, because they worried about meconium aspiration.
My third was a planned c/s, because he had hydrocephalus.
My fourth was 16 days late, an induced, failed v-bac with no progression after 9 cm (posterior with bad presentation) and after 16 hours stuck at 9 cm amped up on pit., had another c/s because baby was showing signs of stress.
My biggest fear is another posterior presentation. I'm sad that my previous midwives and OB didn't know how to turn a posterior baby and I'm hoping we can turn this one if he/she presents posterior to.
What I'm most excited about is having a water birth and being at home. We are going to rent one of those heated tubs. My SIL who is trained as a Doula is going to attend. Having had a homebirth before we have a pretty good idea of how things are going to go down. We just have to find a midwife we like who lives close enough to make it happen!
