We have avoided telling my IL's about planning a HB because my MIL already thinks I am crazy for breastfeeding, cloth diapering and selective and delayed vax. Well, she put the peices together from something dh and I said and asked me point blank. I hesitated and told her the truth. And surprisingly she was excited! My FIL was born at home (and one of his kids was born at home and he strongly believes that home is where babies are made and should be born there!) and my MIL had planned at HB in 1976 with my SIL, but SIL was born at 32 weeks so obviously that didn't happen. Again, she wanted a HB with dh, but she couldn't find a midwife that would do one because of complications in her past. So she is very excited that I will be getting to do it and asked if I would mind having skype on while I labored (not the pushing part unless I was comfortable) because she really wants to be as involved as she can with the birth! Dh and I about fell over when we found all this out. This is the first thing my MIL have EVER had in common!

Momma to Emma, Elzie, Gretchen, Olive, and Rogan

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

That is awesome! How exciting for you. What do you think about the whole Skype thing? I have to say that I never even considered it. But, it would be kind of cool for my Mom, since she wont be here. Hmmmmm
