I haven't gotten any flack from strangers... My MIL and her MIL (DH's paternal gma) both have said Oh, you're delivering at home are you? We'll just see about that. I'm pretty sure that if you stick your nose waaaay up in the air and plug it you'll get the exact tone that they had.

My big thing is to say I'm sorry you don't agree with my decision, I can give you studies proving that it as just as safe as if not safer than hospital birth and that's not a reflection on you and your choices. And if that doesn't go over then I say oh well,
"I trust birth—not birth attendants—for if you only trust birth that is attended then you really don't trust birth at all. You trust the attendant. And then you start over. Who? Doctor, surgeon, CNM, CPM, SIM? And it goes on and on...." - Carla Hartley
