Hello there! I just found out I'm pregnant with #1 and I'm so excited! I feel very strongly about having a homebirth. However, my gynecologist (OB/GYN) is a friend of mine and especially my husband's. She has indicated that she would be willing to care for me prenatally even if I have a homebirth, but she is strongly against it. I wouldn't necessarily even follow with an MD, but dh feels strongly about it so I don't really mind. But my question is this -- we have an appointment next week to discuss birth options and I'm afraid that I am not going to be able to answer her objections with eloquance and with back-up of literature and facts. I'm afraid that everyone will roll their eyes when I say I'm not so sure I want an ultrasound. I'd really like this to be a productive meeting, and not intimidating. Any suggestions for good medical research/reading material? Any ideas that have worked for any of you? Thanks so much!
