I'm due in 3 weeks and going for a home hypnobirth (www.hypnobirthing.co.uk). Home births are statistically less likely to need intervention, take much less time and quicker to recover from. Plus you've got all your own stuff around you and your partner isn't sent home directly after the birth! Having siad that, the fact that we are only ten minutes away from the hospital is pretty reassuring, not sure i'd be so happy if we were miles away?
I think the same as the others,as long as you feel ok with it and no prob in pregnancy then go for it.
The midwives do have their bag of tricks with them if needed.
I would love a home water birth secondtime round but just no adi would never agree to the idea.
Best of luck and hope your midwife is helpful for you.
