I'm afraid to go to the hospital after an incident I had when i went there 2 yrs ago. So I have been doing some research on home birthing and they just don't tell you much about it has andyone ever done a home birth before

LOL. I'm in Canada, I had a homebirth and I loved it! It was not too bad at all. It hurt like crazy, but felt more like hard work than like injury, if that makes sense. Next time I have ideas that would make it better (not being on the bed while pushing the baby out, etc.) I will definitely do the same again next time if I have a low-risk pregnancy.

The main thing is to get a midwife that is qualified. If you're in the States, there are all kinds of levels of midwife. You want the one that's like a doctor. I don't know what sort that is, but I know that you need to be careful. Other people will be more helpful than me, I'm sure.

You'll also want to get educated (by reading or going to classes) about what happens while giving birth and to get out of the idea of being scared of it. At least that helped me a lot.
