Hugs to you Beth...
That is really lousy.
Here's what I would do.
I would write them a letter after a bit of time after you reconnect with your little one inside and remember all your reasons for choosing what you are doing. I would then tell them thanks very much for your concern but I am have made my choice and I do not wish for anyone to project their negativity onto this again. If you have any doubts, please keep them to yourself and do not discuss them with me. I would prefer you discuss them (not at all, but if you must then amongst yourselves).
You don't have to give them any rational, whay you have chosen this or anything. All you have to do at this point is reconnect with your truth, and set some boundaries for those whose cup has runneth over!
I am sorry that you had to go through this, but maybe you can use it as a challenge to further strengthen your resolve and to reaffirm why you have chosen this in the first place. They are in fear. You do not need fear and doubt around you. Only people around you now who support you and honor what you are doing for your baby (and yourself). Choose love!
I send you all strength to be a warrior, goddess, mother who intuits the truth and can cut away the extraneous and unnecessary with her sword.
Go forth and give birth to your little one at home, in love, with love, surrounded by love, in harmony and with beautiful music. Candles.
Trust your body. It truly knows what to do.
Trust yourself. You are honoring your own truth with your choice.
Noone can take that away from you. Visualize the birth you want to have.
Please keep us posted and keep those folks away from you now.
Sending you much love and strength.
And peace of mind!
