Hello! I just got my BFP and plan on a my first natural childbirth...in a hospital. My husband is not comfortable at home and Kaiser is really good with natural birth.

A little bit about my other two births.
My son, 2007, was induced at 39w3d because of severe sciatica...I couldn't walk at all. (Years later and I know I could have done exercises to realize it but I was clueless my first time around.) My labor and delivery was about 11 hours. Fairly uneventful, I did bleed A LOT after I delivered him. I believe that was because the resident yanked on the cord to get the placenta out....the placenta came out in pieces! I ended up having to go back into the hospital 8 weeks later for excessive bleeding. I still had a piece of the placenta in my uterus!
My daughter, 2010, was, again, induced. I was in prodromal labor for DAYS and was getting impatient. Her labor lasted about 4 hours. (well, not even that because it took them an hour to get the pit gong after I got to the hospital) Her's was a perfect labor and delivery, no complications at all.
With this birth I would love a completely natural birth. Like I said above my husband is not comfortable with a homebirth so I need to be able to stay strong for myself with a natural birth. DH isn't someone to really stick up for me during labor..lol...he stands in the corner clueless.
I would love to hire a doula, but they are just so expensive where we live!
So, there's a back story. Thanks for reading!
