I have had 2 homebirths, and it was much easier to deal with questions and horrified reactions the second time around!

How did you tell your parents and close relatives about your plan to not go to a hospital? Did you tell your friends well in advance, right before, or afterward?

Those who have had birth center births and homebirths can often deal with people who think they are taking their own and their baby's life into their hands by not being in a hospital with all the latest medical technology. I think it's important to talk about how to handle questions and accusations in an educated and infomative manner.

Thank you BAM for my signature!!
