He didn't get that the midwife does the whole deal... I think I'll be doing a lot of explaining!
LOL! My dad said the exact same thing when I was pregnant with DS. He never was 100% on-board with the homebirth/midwife thing, but at least he eventually stopped asking about my doctor!
We are planning a homebirth, just like with DS. We had a good experience, and I couldn't imagine doing it any other way. We are trying to move, though, so I don't think I can use the same midwife as with DS
. I will probably at least start care with her, though, because I really, really like her. I have another midwife all picked out in our new location, though, so if we move I should be all set!
