I quoted facts at mine for years. Good thing too, because I had already warmed him up when we "surprise!" got pregnant. Then, what really pushed him over the edge was that he really, really likes our midwife. He is an engineer, and I think she reminds him of one. Experienced, organized, professional. Wonderful stats.

Even though I know it's important for me to really connect with the midwife (and I do), I saw it as even more important that HE be comfortable with her, because I will need him, and he will be useless to me if he's worried about her competency.

And then he's coming home and asking me the statistics, "Which country is is that has the best birth outcomes that mostly uses midwives?" "What was that you said about the mortality and morbidity rates?" Because he got in an argument with someone at work and wants to have his facts in line when it comes up again. I was like Who knew?
