Pediatricians Reaction
 
What was your pediatrician's reaction to the news that your baby was born at home? Did you receive any difficulty or negative opinions from your pediatrician or the staff in the office?

Mine have all just said "Oh, okay" and moved on. I think that in this area of the country they are somewhat used to seeing it. :)

I specifically went to a pedi that knew of homebirths that way I wouldn't have to deal with any slack. I had to take Nola to a 3 day checkup as part of the birth cert. thingy, other than that I don't take my kids to the doctors unless it's something I can't handle, and that usually just means ER.

I've not found a pedi around here that isn't going to harass me for my choices in birth or parenting, it's making me nervous.

I've only had curious reactions. Most ask a lot of questions but so far its been a good experience.
