At first he was really scared about it, but agreed to consider it because I was so anxious about having to birth in the hospital again.

Watching "Gentle Birth Choices" made a big difference! While he was still nervous, he could understand more about what the big difference was and why I wanted to be home.

Meeting our midwife helped even more. He was able to ask her all the questions he needed to - what if I bled too much? What if the cord was around baby's neck? What if, what if.... She was able to explain to him exactly what she would do in each situation, and what situations would require a hopsital transfer.

And then going through it and seeing the enormous difference sold him completely. He's more pro-homebirth now than I am!!! LOL
