When I first decided to have a homebirth, my mom was willing to listen to information, my dad was not. He knows I will do whatever I set my mind to, and that there was really nothing he could do to dissuade me. My mom ended up being present at my first homebirth, so she continues to be supportive.

I have never gotten any accusations personally about putting myself or my baby at risk, but I certainly know women who have had those accusations made about them.

Mostly Ive just had curious questions and opportunities to educate people about what homebirth means, who cleans up, how hard it is to go without pain meds, those sorts of things. I get a lot of "wow, you are brave" and "I could never do that".

Thank you BAM for my signature!!
