I just joined and am a first time mom. I'm 23, and married a widower(45) with 2 young teenage boys. We've been married just over a year and I'm 13 1/2 weeks pregnant!! Yay! This was totally a planned pregnancy, but DH was not ready for my desires for labor and delivery.
Has anyone here persuaded their DH that a homebirth or birthing center is the best option? I'd like very little medical intervention of possible. But I do understand the need for it in emergency situations!! I am in a practice with OB and NM. My OB is great and is very understanding about the homebirth. I see the NM next week just to discuss the pregnancy.
DH experienced 2 planned c-sections and bottle feeding with his 2 sons, now 14 & 16. So me mentioning even a natural birth and feeding on demand(another topic for another day) has freaked him out!! Poor guy
He's supportive, but I'd like to hear from others some different view points or ways they discussed this topic.
