Who was the most positive when you shared your plans and desires to homebirth? Was it your parents? maybe friend?

Honestly? The home birth board, you ladies. People around us were nice, but they were against it.

This is excluding Jason, my husband

I haven't really gotten any negative comments, but nothing overwhelmingly positive either...

the other day I talked to someone through email (haven't met her, just talked to her about a project she's doing) and she was excited. lol Our local AP parenting group has lots of homebirthers so they've been really supportive and encouraging.

I've only told my sister and a close friend who is due the same time as me. My sister was extremely worried I wasn't thinking things through, but I think she will eventually support it, though it will take a lot of convincing. My friend is all for it since she is planning a home-birth herself!

It was actually my family practice doctor! He told me that it was my best option since he didn't feel that I'd be given a good chance to have a VBAC since ds1 was a 26 week preemie (born naturally) and ds2 was a c-section. He told me that my midwife was more than welcome to call him and confer with him and that if we needed him he might just come to the house.
