Birthing in the water enabled me to enter my own little internal world where gravity barely existed and nothing seemed real.  I was completely at peace and hardly aware of the hospital commotion around me.  I can not imagine doing it any other way.

I had planned on having a waterbirth in our home, baby was 2 weeks early, so I figured it was false labor until I had some bloody show. I had my husband call the midwife and when she arrived I was already in transition and laboring in water the whole time.  The labor went fairly uneventful and flowed as it should. 6 1/2 hours later, our beautiful 9 pound baby boy was born!  He came out of the water, hardly making a sound but breathing normally. His color was good and the midwife didn't even have to suction his mouth or nose.  It was textbook perfect!

This was my first homebirth but my 4th waterbirth.  What a wonderful experience to be able to labor and deliver in the privacy of my own home.  I wish more states were more open to homebirths.
