I want one!

I havent had any kids yet, but despite everyone being negative about it, I know I want a home birth when I do have kids! I have said this to hubby before and he says no, but as far as im concerned its up to me!x

well I spoke to my hubby last night and he's not convinced. Doesnt seem to think it is safe and gave me the "what if something goes wrong" speech. Which I am not acccepting, I REALLY want a homebirth but have decided not to push this until I am actually pregnant as it might change his mind altogether!!lol dont want to push my luck!!

Going to wait until the MW appointments and get her to tell him how safe it is and hope he takes more notice of her and also get him to read some stuff on the homebirthing site.

I think he'll give in eventually.

definitely yes! i had an awful hospital indiuction with my 1st as i went 2 weeks overdue and i really wanted a home birth with my second. i was consultant led as i lost a lot of blood with my 1st and the consultant was really negative and tried to scare me out of it by telling me i could die etc but i refused to go to the consulant led unit so she allowed me to stay midwife led as long as i went to paisley. After all that i went in to labour, went to the hospital, they told me he has turned around it will be hours yet you should go home and come back later. i went home and went into full blown labour within 15 mins of getting in the front door and harvey was delivered by my poor mother who was a nervous wreck lol. i had to be carted back up to the hospital in an ambulance after that which was a pain. so next time no matter what some middle aged consultant with no kids tries to scare me with, i will be staying at home as long as there is no legitimate medical reason that i have to go into hospital. I just wished i had listened to my instincts and not the consultant. x

Tell him that there is an ambulance there waiting in the event that something did go wrong and that you'll have two midwives just like at the hospital who are more than capable of delivering a baby its kinda there job lol you'll also be more relaxing at home, with my two home births my LO's slept through the first night as I think that they were more relaxed too

Even though i live in a state where they don't particularly favor (understatement!) home births and midwives, i am going to try my best to have a home birth
I have been following this thread for quite some time:

I can understand totally why people have home births but myself I am petrified that something will go wrong and would feel safer having my 1st in hospital. What I am worried about though is ending up having it in the car as we live quite far from the hospital and there does not seem to be an easy or quick route to it! hmmm

I nearly had a homebirth - transferred to hospital at 8cm for c-section - and it was great! I'd give serious thought to doing it again, even as a VBAC. It was lovely to get so much individual attention and be in familier surroundings.

DH started off thinking "no way" but gradually became supportive once he saw how much reading and research I was doing. The antenatal class midwives were also very pro-homebirth, which helped him I think.

Oh, and I think the ambulance station is advised when a homebirth is underway. Mine must have parked up close by just in case as they were outside the house in the time it took DH to run upstairs, zip up my hospital bag and run back down!

I am WTT for my first and I've given serious consideration to having a home birth. A friend of mine has had two and she loved it. My OH is ok with it as I've explained to him if anything goes wrong we go nee nah nee nah all the way to the hospital!
