My in laws were very unsupportive when i had my son at home...he was born after 13 hours of labor in my bathroom! everyone could see him asap! i loved it! slept in my bed, my mama stayed close by and my hubby was with me every second! Also both my sisteres and 2 midwives welcomed my baby, we all loved him the moment he was born...what a great environment for a baby.
Now baby #2 is being talked about (not preg yet)
My sil just had a baby and her pregnancy was hard, hard birth, induced labor...both look horrible days later...it was very traumatic. she is on bed rest...and hemoraged (sp?) very bad.
she said if she had had him at home she would have died! why would she even say that? she NEVER considered home birth...rude?
so how do i calm myself?
i dont want a hospital birth....
