If he is a bathroom reader, leave some Homebirth books or articles in the bathroom. That's what I did. My husband was completely opposed to it at first and we had lots of arguments about it. After he did some reading, he opened his mind a bit. Then we scheduled a meeting with a homebirth nurse to talk about what would happen and to address each and every one of his concerns. That helped a ton! He was still nervous, but finally agreed to it. After the birth itself and being able to compare it to my previous hospital births, he's become a big homebirth advocate. He said he wouldn't want me to ever give birth in a hospital again!
Good luck with your dh. Give him time and make sure you validate his feelings and concerns. Hopefully he will come around.
