Just an option
    I actually went and had meeting and tour through a birthing centre and it all seemed really lovely. I just can't birth there because it would take me about an hour to get there in the car. I'm expecting this labour to only be about two hours so I don't want to risk not getting to hospital. Unfortunately there is only one birthing centre in WA

    Thank you ladies It looks like the key is to write a birth plan and make sure dp knows it and supports me through it by sticking up for me. I may have to confiscate his phone this time so he actually knows what's going on lol.

    I need to get to the hospital asap as I'm expecting this labour to be very short. I also want to get there so I can make sure I'm moving around as much as possible. Don't want to be stuck in the car on the way not being able to move.
