No, there's a midwife. I'm too chicken to go unassisted, and DH kind of goes into the "I don't know what to do" mode, so while I love him, I need more support from someone who knows what she's doing

But to this lady, I don't know that there is a difference in her mind between having an unassisted birth and a birth attended by anyone but a doctor. I did tell her there is a midwife though, and where I found her etc. She was curious, but in a skeptical way, which I guess is to be expected. I guess I just thought everyone's first response was going to be the "are you CRAZY?" not "isn't that messy?"

Click the blinkies!

Thank You, Pattyandthemoos, for my beautiful siggy!
