We both work at the same place and we were talking the other night. He told me how "The more we get involved in this [homebirth] the more I want to educate others. I hate talking to ___ and ___ at work because sometimes they just don't get it!"

It was so sweet I didn't think he was taking that much to how beneficial a homebirth is... he can be very secretive about his true feelings!

Today as I was leaving work I was talking to two guys (one who knew we were having a homebirth and thought it was interesting) and the other guy is having his first boys (wife preggo with twins) and his face went blank when he asked me where I was having my baby at and said "home". LOL! He did the, "I'd really just want to be at the hospital with all the dr.'s and machines and etc. . . in case something went wrong. . blah blah blah"

WHATEVER. I get really annoyed when ppl make comments on something they are so ignorant about. Makes them look really stupid. LOL!

My husband made similar sweet comments during my pregnancy. Now, after our home birth he's been even more outspoken about it! I love how he wants to educate people, he's not pushy doing it either.

I learned to ignore the comments. I know a few people who ask if they read the bible and such (im not religious so I've never said this) then went on about how Jesus was born in a manger. I found it easier to nod, smile and say I'm well aware of everything, thank you.
