Welcome! I'm Alison and I'm planning my second home birth. My Mom was somewhat against the idea of home birth but she was there when Reid was born and now understands why we chose to birth at home. As long as your birth team is supportive then do your best to ignore those who are saying negative things. There are a lot of resources out there with statistical data supporting home birth as a very safe way to welcome a baby into the world. I think a lot of people don't understand the level of care you'll receive from your midwife and her expertise in emergency situations as well.

Congratulations on your pregnancy!
Alison - Mom to: Emmeline (7/14), Augustus (2) Maximus (4) Eleanor (5) Reid (6) Evelyn (8) Lucas (13) Christopher (14)
