What does your family think about home birth?

My sister asked me the typical, "but what about an emergency?" questions last time. I'm sure she's all judgy about it, her and I are opposites when it comes to birth/health in general.

Other family members never said anything. I guess they've always known me to be the weird/natural one so they didn't think it was too terribly odd for me to go this route.

My mom is a nurse and the 1st home birth she was worried but the 2nd time she was much more supportive. We didn't tell people about our first hb until after the fact, I wanted to be a safe happy place about the birth. They were shocked after it came out.

My family is very supportive. My Mom actually caught my last baby - she loved it! They were a bit nervous the first time, but this will be homebirth #5 for us if all goes well.
navywifey2003 and Earthy.Mama like this.

I'm glad you have support! That's wonderful! My mom tried to make it to my son's birth but he came quickly.
