"I think that you can't necessarily convince people that UC is a good idea. Most people just can't get past their ideas about childbirth as a dangerous "emergency waiting to happen" event. I would suggest feeling 100% confident in your decision and not debating it with others."
I agree. But for those open to considering that maybe just maybe I wasn't a total lunatic
I was happy to talk and share resouirces with them. I'd rather be understood than not, even it they still ended up not agreeing with me. FWIW, none of my family was interested in educating themselves about it, but just the fact that I was confident enough about it to offer information, I think made them feel that I was approaching it in a thoughtful, responsible way and that was enough for them not to feel like they had to become involved and save me from myself.
