I honestly think the only thing blocking them mentally from agreeing to a home birth is that it's not "normal". What will people say? Even though it is just as safe, I think it's also hard for them to feel "safe" in a medical way, at home - I think some men just need to get past that mental aspect of it to really feel comfortable with the idea.

DH and I will be discussing this over the next week before I meet with the HB midwife, so if you manage to convince yours, I'd love to know how you did it! I really want to respect him and take into consideration what he is going to be comfortable with, but I don't see a logical reason why he shouldnt' be either, since a home birth IS just as safe as giving birth at the birth center.
