Quoting Roe23:" I was home within 4 hours of giving birth to my second, it was wonderful. I arrived at the hospital ... [snip!] ... am and was home around 5:30 am (I live about half an hour from the hospital). My midwife called it a 'drive through birth' :D."


We could have left around then, too...but DH was passed out and I could not wake him up :lol: We got to the hospital around 2 am he was born at 3:21. i think we left the hospital at 9. or we were home at 9. its so fuzzy now because i hadnt slept in over 24 hours and we left straight to get our older two sons.

i sure hope it all works out. it seems like a very memorable expierence.. im going to see if any one on my spouses page has given birth that way at this hospital.. maybe see how it was for them. :)



my first i was induced.. went in easter sunday at 8 and didnt have her til 1046 am monday and i torn in a Y shape up my cervix because of the catheter and other monitors they had on her. i went from 1.5cm to 10 in less than 20 mins. she was stuck and where she was stuck was where the cords were and it ripped me on the way out :/ so im terrified of that again. i got a TON of stitches

I have had three water births . I love the tub. To me it helps me relax inbetween contractions so that all my energy goes into the contractions themselves. Laboring in the tub is sooooo much better IMO. My hubby has been in the tub with me for the birth all three times and caught all three of our girls. I went to a free standing birth center with a huge tub so I was able to deliver on my knees leaning over the tub which is much better then on my back ( I delivered my first this way). I highly recommend water births. I'm planing a fourth this summer.

<blockquote><b>Quoting Whoahbabyy:</b>" The hospital I will be giving birth at offers waterbirths.... But theres a weight limit and im 12 pounds ... [snip!] ... water birth? Or a water birth and a normal medicated vaginal birth and can compare for me? I really am curious on what to do :/"</blockquote>




I planned to labour in the tub, I really hated it I couldn't move or get comfy, I was so hot it was unbelievable lol.
The shower worked a treat but ended up with an epidural after 6 & half hours of intense back labour.
