Re: Getting DH on board for a home birth

I know exactly how you feel! For our third I really wanted a home birth. DH said absolutely no way. I found a cnm who had worked in a hospital. I told her the situation and she was more than happy to have a sit down with us so that we could hash out the fears we had. It was great. I really wanted to validate his fears but we ended up not being trapped in them. And we were 5 minutes from the hospital, she had oxygen, knew how to detect too much blood loss, etc.
I hope you can both get on the same page. It's hard to work together when you have different desires. Prayers and hugs for you.
