    The fastest way out!  LOL.  I had a traditional childbirth, lying down and pushing, but if you can get into a better position, like squatting, half sitting, or whatever, it does help give you better pushing power.  Basically, as long as the childbirth doesn't last three days or something, you will be fine.  Walk a lot, eat healthily, and hope for a short but effective labor.

    What two of options do you mean exactly. There are so many. I'd love a midwife attended home birth without complication.

    Homebirth with midwives. I've had a natural hospital and a natural homebirth (ie: vaginal birth with hardly any painkillers) and while these two experiences were the most amazing of my life, I preferred the homebirth.

    I was about a hundred times more relaxed at home and I found that that actually reduced the amount of pain I experienced.

    As for position, I found being upright much much better than laying down (might as well let gravity help, eh?!)

    I haven't had children yet, but I am planning on using a midwife. I may change my mind about the second one after that smile
