Hmm, my DH used to be like this. I made him read research and meet with a midwife (we didn't end up liking her) and I wouldn't let it go. I asked him (because I knew the answer was yes at the time) if he was pro-choice. When he said yes I had a great arguement, if he thinks it's okay for me to choose to end my pregnancy then why isn't it okay for me to choose where and how I give birth? He couldn't answer. It hasn't caused a rift between us at all, and now he's supportive. We even met with another homebirth couple in our area last night and they were wonderful! He's still nervous but he supports homebirth now just as much as I do and I daresay that by the time this baby comes he'll probably be more adament about it than I!
