    I’m having a VBAC homebirth! My midwife has quite a bit of experience with them so I’m pretty excited! =)

    VBAC is a vaginal birth after cesarean & I will be birthing at home. =)

    @LaviniaRose2013: To me it will be easier than a repeat cesarean & the american college of obstetrics & gynecology recommends that if a mom is low risk that she should be able to try for a vbac if she wishes, so I feel pretty confident. I’m staying out of the hospital merely b/c we have a high low risk first time mom cesarean rate already AND they don’t allow VBACs (even thought they are equipped for them). They told my best friend the only way she’d get to have her baby vaginally (vbac) was if she “came through the door with the baby between your legs” That was pretty much enough for me. =/ I have a great midwife though who is incredibly experienced with VBACS and will be here the entire time able to watch me.. if something goes wrong I live less than 5 minutes from the hospital. She’s only had to tranfer one laboring mom in the last 2 1/2 years and they already expected that b/c the momma had low amniotic fluid. I know I could always be number #2 but I also know that IF I were, it’d be because I really needed the transfer and cesarean and not just b/c it was “inconvenient” for the doctors or hospital. =)

    @LaviniaRose2013: I actually live a couple hours southwest of Houston in the “crossroads” if you’ve ever heard the term. I’m sure that there are hospitals that allow them there in Houston, but from what I’ve heard finding a provider can still be difficult. =/

    My first was vaginal in a hospital but didn’t go as planned and almost ended in a C Section. My future second child I would LOVE to have a home birth but they are illegal in my state so I will be having another vaginal hospital birth hoping this time I can go drug free and avoid complications that lead to having to take the meds.

    @MarryMeTiffany: Wow I had no idea that in some states it is illegal! Sheesh now I know never to move to any of them. lol You could still get a CNM though and that may help with your wishes for a natural birth… that and a doula and staying home as long as possible! lol

    I don’t plan on getting pregnant for a LONG time, but my mom had 3 out of her 5 children at home (me included), and I have always planned on having my children at home as well. My future husband thinks it’s wierd, because he’s never heard of it before, but I’m going to talk him into it.

    @runsyellowlites: I had a midwife when I had my son but do to falling in the shower I had to be induced which lead to some side effects I was stuck in mhmmm doggie style position threw my entire 16 hour labor and I was going in and out of conciousness on oxygen the whole time it was nuts. I ended up having to get an epidural at 7c dialted because being in that position for so long was uncomfortable and I was in so much pain but that position was the only way to keep my sons heartrate at a safe level in other position it dropped. I was prepped for a c section but thankfully ended up being able to have him vaginally.

    I gave birth vaginally my first time, and plan to do so again. I’d love to attempt a water birth this time, but we’ll see. I don’t like to get my heart set on any plan in particular.

    @MarryMeTiffany: OMGoodness! Well next time I’m sure you won’t have THOSE same complications atleast! Even though it isn’t the “normal” position I bet you being on all fours throughout most of your labor helped with you still get your vaginal birth. That is QUITE a situation though!

    I’ll be having a natural/unmedicated vaginal birth at a hospital or birth center (we still haven’t decided which we’re going with yet). I would love to have a water birth, but we are waiting to see if our insurance will cover the birth center–you would think it would be a no-brainer for the company since it’s cheaper than the hospital.
