When expectant mothers have a question about their births relating to hospitals, why do many mothers feel the need to come in a push their homebirth views? I'm all for sharing information when it's useful, but when a 38 weeker has a simple question she needs advice for, she shouldn't have to hear something like "I think it's pathetic that you haven't figured out you should be having your baby at home already." Really? Is that in any way helpful or informative? Did that comment serve any purpose whatsoever?
I am all for homebirths. They're wonderful, perfectly safe alternatives for those who aren't comfortable in hospital settings. But there are also some who are uncomfortable at home, and choose the hospital for many reasons. And no, for crying out loud, it doesn't make them uneducated! It just means that's where they prefer to give birth, which is their right and choice. Why the pressure?
