My DH and I have been discussing a homebirth for our next child. He doesn't seem to have any problems with the idea, except that he thinks it will be very messy. I told him there isn't that big of a mess and he replied "I looked down when DS was coming out and it was really messy", and I really have no response because I couldn't see anything from my angle at the time. (DS was a hospital birth).
So, how messy is it? Once we become pregnant I will ask the midwife to discuss his concerns with him, but I'd love to hear your stories/opinions.
