Yeah, I have gotten some negative reactions too.... I try not to even mention it around strangers (I am a work at home mom so i don't really interact with that many people every day).

My mom was tough to convince and she is still demanding to be here during labor and birth (she won't be but I am unwilling to muster the energy to have the fight with her). The last thing I need here is a person who doubts my decision!

I am lucky to be part of a strong home birth/natural birth community - there are at least 3-4 other moms in my prenatal yoga classes who are homebirthers and a very good friend of mine just had a great homebirth in May so she is constantly telling me I can do it and it's the right decision.

I know it's hard not to punch people who make rude comments (about birth plans, our belly size, whatever)...hang in there mama!!!
