Quoting August Here We Come :" I would really love to have a water birth but my insurance wont cover anything other than the traditional ... [snip!] ... the next month found out we were pregnant again!) If anything id just like to experience a vaginal birth the way I want it."
my insurance doesn't cover it either (water birth). well... maybe it does, but the hospitals around here don't allow it. so I'm paying out of pocket for a home water birth! only 2,000$ so not bad IMO.
just because you're small does NOT mean you are at greater risk for a c-section. I know a lot of doctors will say otherwise though
It's ultimately your decision how you want your birth to go though. Just don't give in to any pressure.
