My name is Latisha & I was just curious as to how many mamas had their babies @ home. My first son was delivered by c-section (it was a terrible hospital experience) & since I had a c-section, when I got pregnant with baby #2, I was told that I would have to have a repeat c-section, if I didn't go into labor naturally. I went for a second opinion because surgery was not what I wanted ( dont get me wrong, if something was seriously wrong, then take the baby, just dont schedule me to come in because you dont have the patience to wait on my body to do the work). So, I finally found my midwife, who believed in me, even when I began to doubt myself. I had my son @ home and I was in labor less than 10 hours, and I pushed for 10 minutes. It was everything I hoped for & more. I so thankful that I had the birth that I set out to get. If you ever have any doubt about your doctor, or you feel like your wants/needs are being pushed aside so the doctor can have his/her way with YOUR body, seek another doctor or midwife that will give support the birth plan you desire.
