What does your family think about home birth?

Re: Family
My sister asked me the typical, "but what about an emergency?" questions last time. I'm sure she's all judgy about it, her and I are opposites when it comes to birth/health in general.

Other family members never said anything. I guess they've always known me to be the weird/natural one so they didn't think it was too terribly odd for me to go this route.

My mom is a nurse and the 1st home birth she was worried but the 2nd time she was much more supportive. We didn't tell people about our first hb until after the fact, I wanted to be a safe happy place about the birth. They were shocked after it came out.

My family is very supportive. My Mom actually caught my last baby - she loved it! They were a bit nervous the first time, but this will be homebirth #5 for us if all goes well.

Re: Family
I'm glad you have support! That's wonderful! My mom tried to make it to my son's birth but he came quickly.
