SO I mentioned when I took my 5 year old in for his ADHD follow up that I am pregnant again but the baby wont be seen by their office til 6 weeks and not in the hospital.  SHe asked why and I said I am giving birth at home and my midwife will see him til 6 weeks.  She said HOMEBIRTH?! Are you nuts? thats so unsafe! I asked her why it was unsafe and she stammered over her words and couldnt find any

wow can't believe the nurse said that! Good job! My ped was pretty relaxed about my home birth. But they wanted to see her right away. I wish I had waited cause they tried to freak out about her having jaundice but she was fine. My midwife even came back out to the house to check on her.

This is my MIL exactly (a nurse as well). She thought it was unsafe for me to have a midwife even though she was a CNM who only practiced in a hospital LOL. BAHAHA. If only she knew hubby and I were planning an unassisted homebirth this time **shudder**.

TONS of the homebirth moms go to this office because they have an IBCLC on staff and allow delayed or no vax without too much of an issue.  Its crazy

Is it wrong that I love tripping up doctors when they have legit reason why natural things are not safe?
