I recently told a friend of my husband's that we were planning a UC. He seemed to not understand although I was being REALLY clear and asked me exactly WHERE we would be giving birth and who would be there. I said we'd have the baby at home, possibly in the water, and that my husband, myself, and 'hopefully' a friend or doula would be there.
He sort of blinked a lot, looked stunned and turned to my husband and said "but who will catch the baby?!" LOL. My husband pointed to me, and I calmly replied that I actually intended to catch the baby myself pending some sort of issue where I needed my husband to do it.
This friend of ours, again looked stunned and asked how that was POSSIBLE. lol and then seemed quite concerned that I'd just pop this baby out full steam on the hardwood floor thereby hurting it! OMG!
I just thought it was sort of funny because of all the things someone could bring up about a UC and why it might not be a good choice (in their opinion), the logistics of how one would catch their baby was pretty far off my radar. lol!
