I had DH watch "The Business of Being Born" with me tonight. When the end credits came up, he turned and looked at me and said, "I am officially 100% supportive of you having a home birth." :bluecheer: :bluecheer: :bluecheer: YAY!

Now we just gotta get me pregnant with a sticky bean!

Thank you Shadowdweller for posting the link to that movie. If it hadn't been for that link, I might not have ever found it, or been able to convince him to let me do this! :bluecheer: :bluecheer: :bluecheer:

You could also start hunting down the perfect midwife :)

I'm checking into things, but it looks like I won't have much of a choice. :confused: There was a midwife about an hour north of me when I was researching this about a year ago. She's not listed anymore though. I can't find any listed within 100 miles of me. I'm going to be making some calls, but I'm wondering if the next step is trying to convince DH that an unassisted homebirth is safe. :confused:

ETA: I did find the local lady again. She just wasn't listed on the one directory. There are only three midwives within 100 miles. Two only do hospital births. The one I am interested in and going to set up a time to talk with soon does hospital, birthing center, or home births. Hopefully she's turns out to be as great as she appears to be. This is her website

That's wonderful that DH is on board and you've located a midwife! Let us know how the talk with her goes...I hope you click with her! :smile:

I hope so too. I doubt DH would go for UA, and I don't see much point in have a midwife who is three, four, or five hours away. The way my labors go, she would either be stuck here for who knows how long, or else she would miss it completely! lol

I'll definitely keep you posted though. Now...ya'll send a BFP my way! lol

That's wonderful! I think that movie is just such a blessing to women everywhere!
