So, y'know, hearing about your experience convinces me that I'll make sure that I arrive at the hospital as the baby is crowning. My husband went through an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) course so I'm guessing he can handle delivering the baby in the taxi/car (our friend has volunteered to drive us). I've done a ton of research over the past four months about everything there is to know about home birth and unassisted childbirth. I've spoken with people who have done it and have a lot of good insight. We also have a practical manual/guide that was published by the US government describing the procedures needed as well as a full supply list. So, I'm going to stay home until I'm at least 4-5 cm dilated (and yes, you can check your own dilation--also not rocket science--quite easy to do, actually) and then go to the hospital and let what happens happen.
I can guarantee you that if anyone in the labor ward (doctor, nurse, midwife, whoever) tries to tell me how or when I can vocalize there really will be hell to pay for them and it will be delivered in fluent Cantonese by my husband. I'm also not above waddling my happy bum right out of the hospital and giving birth on the front steps if they honestly can't show respect. That's just how things are.

Good luck to your delivery. Hope it will go the way you wanted. Looking forward to you writing about how it went.
