Pregnant mum

I’m 34 weeks and had planned all along to have a water birth at a birthing centre, but recently we had an amazing parent education session with our lovely midwife where she suggested a home birth... something we had not considered but now I can’t get it out of my mind!

So any advice or help from people who had home births would be amazing!

I had a home birth. It was due to my labour happening so quickly (24 minutes) so wasn't planned. However being around all my own surroundings was so relaxing and all my family could see her. My baby was delivered by the paramedic so only had gas and air, which I think is the only pain relief you can have with home birth. I didn't have to worry about all the scary stuff happening outside. Just my family and my baby. Wouldn't change a thing about my delivery.
