What Are Your Birth Plans?

After two hospital births, and a water birth at a free standing birth center we're excited to be planning our very first UC! What are your plans?

Weve had two hospital births and a birth center birth that went amazing so this time we are planning a homebirth with a mw.

We had a hospital birth that was amazing. All my wishes were respected so we will plan another hospital birth.

i can't wait to hear about everyones hbs! i'm fine with our hospital birth, but a part of me will always love hearing about people having their babies at home! if we're living in a house when i get pg with #4 (i'd like 4 children, so it would be our last), i may try for a hb one more time.

Re: What Are Your Birth Plans?

DD was a homebirth but I tore and had to got to ER to get stitches. MAJOR stitches. At my app last week the OB dr I see said I have a bunch of scar tissue from that and she thinks I am highly likely to tear the tissue again. DH and I are not prepared to go through the trauma of transporting a 10 minute old newborn and a majorly bleeding mama to the hospital again if it would happen so we decided for this birth the hospital is our best choice. We are sad we dont get another homebirth but we are ok with it. My OB dr is amazing!! She told me flat out she will NOT do a episiotomy unless absolutely necessarily, she would much rather I tear then cut me. And she also said she has no problem with me laboring in the shower or birth ball.

Hospital Birth! We are 20mins away from the nearest hospital, and 30mins from my preferred hospital, so I just don't feel comfortable trying a HB . I do love my Dr., and my 2nd and 3rd births, so I'm ok with that.
