Homebirth/mlu after previous pph?

Had a small pph with dc3 and now expecting dc4. Really hoped for a waterbirth either at home or at local mlu (attached to hospital) but have been told these are definately not options for me after losing just over 1000ml after last birth.
Has anyone had a pph and gone on to have a waterbirth/homebirth/mlu birth? If so, did you have another pph?

I had a pph with my first, 5.5 pints. It was made very clear to me that I had no option other than consultant led care. Obviously given the circumstances I'm more than happy with this. Had dc2 with no pph, dc3 due soon and still no option but consultant led care due to large volume of pph with number 1. Not sure what if any options you have but definitely speak to midwife/consultant to discuss all options.
