Yep! in fact I educated some ladies at church a couple weeks ago. One lady mostly wanted to know about waterbirth, so I told her about that. Then another lady made a comment on how homebirth is great unless something goes wrong. So I calmly explained how you are well monitored and they watch for signs of anything unusual and how there are "rules" to make it as safe as possible. She seemed really receptive.

Yes! I really love when someone finds out we had a home birth and then just pesters me for questions. Even if they have negative thoughts, it's my chance to spread awareness, educate and get the word out about how safe it is.

Plus, I love when I bring up the HBAC in the whole discussion, I get that "are you kidding me?!" look, it makes me laugh haha.
