that is what my DAD said....well he then corrected it to "well put it this way if it were MY baby it wouldn't be born at home" meaning my mom....so anyway...He heard a news story about a lady in MO (springfield) who had a baby and the midwife encouraged them to stay home even up to 48 hours after the water broke...and so on and so on....I looked it up....the lady that was the midwife wasn't certified (she lied to the parents) and "had a bad reputation in CO for dialing 911 and running when a mom was bleeding after birth" (which made me wonder what the midwifery laws there are since many midwives have to be under the radar)....anyway....the article did NOT put a good spin on homebirths....or on midwives....it was really frustrating but really...seriously...DAD do you think I'm going to do something to purposely HURT myself or my BABY!!!??

I assured him my midwife's credentials were intact and that she was even approved by the insurance company AND That she's a CNM meaning she's also been to nursing school....he isn't comfortable with it and is just now voicing his opinion....I think I'm going to have to have a talk with my mom and let her know that if he's not comfortable he can stay home if he wishes (he's been to all the births)....cause I dont need someone giving me a bad vibe in labor....

I said "I had Olive out of hospital" his response was yes but that was more controlled it was a clean environment...Um yeah dad....same midwife group...they are trained for all incidents AND my house will be clean for teh birth...why would I sanitize in February when he's not coming til May...duh..I HAVE FOUR KIDS...lol...ugh....

Anyway...had to share....dh just laughed and said dont worry...just tell him not to come if he doesn't wanna! LOL

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

The bacteria in your home is way safer then that at the hospital. YOu baby is already use to your enviroment...one of many reasons homebirth is safer..IMO.

Sorry he isn't being supportive of your choices. Homebirth is a foreign concept to some so he's probably just worried.

Oh yeah...I told him the "our germs are safer than foreign germs" thing...I know he is just worried....but there are times when you just keep your thoughts to yourself...he usually isn't too much like this....but it is still frustrating....anyway..thanks for listening
