NO NEVER!! My sister and I were pregnant at the same time and we were complete opposites.

She was the induced for medical reasons that weren't really medical reasons, no preparing, epidural, formula feeding mommy who thinks women who bfeed should cover up.

I am the opposite. I don't get into it with people I know because if you talk about the benefits of what you are doing they get all defensive and rude. No thanks. It stresses me out that some women aren't active participants in their wellbeing and their child's during pregnancy and labor.

My best friend IRL is pregnant and is due about 2 weeks ahead of me. And she's so far ahead of me in the natural childbirth department that I'm starting to get an inferiority complex.

As for anyone else, I don't even bother talking about it because either 1-they already agree with me or 2-they never will agree with me so why bother (usually option 2).

I set the bait and hope they'll bite. One friend did and had a wonderful natural birth 3 moinths ago. The other had her heart set on gettting an epi in the parking lot of the hospital. She actually ended up schedualing an elective c-section and never even labored! I've come to the conclusion that only those open minded to the options out there will consider what I have to say, everyone else hads has their plan set in stone (in their minds anyhow).

My brother's fiance is currently pregnant and she's aware that I'm planning a homebirth. She's a nurse and will be delivering at their local hospital. I figure that if she wanted info on a homebirth she'd ask. The way I look at it, I wouldn't want someone trying to change my mind on where and how I birth so I give them the same respect. None of my other friends have had a natural birth and while I think inwardly they think I'm a bit odd for having a homebirth they don't say anything negative either
