I just know I am strong enough to do this. I believe it is the best choice for my baby and my family. I am not a patient, I am not sick. Hospitals are for sick people. My hubbie went along with it because he knew it was important to me and he's always been pretty anti-doc himself. However, months after our decision, I found out he really thought I might DIE!! After meeting with the midwife a couple times, he's really opened up to her and between the two of us we are able to asuage his fears. I have also made a pact with him. If at any point during the birth if he feels like the situation is out of control, he has veto power and if he feels it necessary we wil go transfer. I know that he won't feel like that. It will be such a gentler more intimate experience for him, whereas he was terrified in the hospital. SO I don't think he'd ever feel the need for a transfer. but my promise makes him feel safer.
