I am curious what everyone's birth plans (or past experiences) are. My DD was born at a hospital but with a midwife attending. It was a great experience, but I'm kind of tempted to pursue the home birth option this time. I and my older sister were both born at home, and a good friend of mine has had two home births. I just hired a doula (YAY) and she also had had home births. There is a hospital only 10 minutes away in case anything were to go wrong. The worst part of my labor & delivery last time was the 30-minute drive to the hospital! Everything else went very well.
I guess what is holding me back is the logistics. My midwife from last time does not do home births anymore, so I would have to change midwives, and I don't know whether my insurance would cover any of it.
Just throwing this out there for general discussion! What are your plans and thoughts?
