Have You Given Birth Somewhere Other than in a Hospital?

I mean like in a birthing pool, at home, in a car, somewhere else? Did you panic about not having emergency medical equipment and staff on hand or was it more relaxing being in your own chosen surroundings?

I almost gave birth at home. I went into labor very quickly, my husband called a ambulance and I made it to the hospital on time. But I did give birth in the hallway because there was no time to get me to a room or anywhere private. I remember being pushed into the hospital and passing a little boy and his father and thinking "please not in front of them".

No I had to go to the hospital becuz there is no place around here that does the birthing pools.
