I am wanting a homebirth and I have even contacted a midwife supportive of hbac. I know I can do this! The problem is, we have absolutely NO support from family or even friends I figured would support this decision because they know I would not enter into this decision lightly. I keep hearing over and over about how I am "so damaged" that I can't possibly accomplish a natural birth.
I am so hurt and worse, angry. I am angry that I was lied to, manuiplated, labeled and scarred by my ceseareans. Belief in me is almost non-existant today. Why do other women feel the need to tell me that I am a woman for whom birth just isn't possible?
I'm not damaged goods, am I?
I think I will go have a good cry...
I think a "good friend" is jealous that I have made the decision I did. I just don't get it.
