I am a FTM planning a home birth with a midwife. Long before I was married I knew this was the route I was going to take. H is fully supportive of this (of course), as is my family. However, H's mum is somewhat opinionated. We get along well, but do have our differences. Whenever she says something I don't agree with, I tend to let it slide for the sake of keeping the peace (soooo unlike me).
We have not mentioned the home birth to her yet b/c I KNOW she will not be nearly as supportive as my family. I don't want to offend her (she had a c/s with BIL) but at the same time I feel very strongly about this issue and know I won't be able to let it go this time. SOOO, that being said, how did you tactfully defend your decision w/o offending?
