For now, no one has been unsupportive or at least made any comments to us. My mom seems very skeptical, but hasn't actually said anything yet. I already know if the subject comes up with my MIL though, she will make some stupid, uneducated comments about how unsafe it is. She's a very gullible woman who pretty much believes everything she is told and questions most of my parenting decisions.

The most supportive person right now is a friend of mine who had her first home birth in November. I talked to her after my appt at the birth center and she really encouraged me to call some other home birth midwives. I think she knows how badly I want my home birth and of course she now knows how wonderful it can be. I will be leaning on her for support through this pregnancy a lot, I think.
