Nevermind. "It's all good in the hood"... but feel free to discuss this anyway, at your own leisure! :D

My mom called the cops on me, telling them I was in labor and what...needed help?  Who knows.  Here's what happened:

 

...we heard a knock on the door, and were expecting our friends, but it turned out it was couple of cops.  My mom had called the cops on me.  Great.  We didn't let them in, because I was still naked and babies were still naked, and we had a big bloody mess in front of me (including my placenta in a bowl, lol).  And anyway, I just didn't see a reason to let them in my house.  So Jason went out and dealt with them on the porch.  They explained to him that we're not in any trouble because we hadn't done anything illegal, but that since they received a call, they had no choice but to check things out and call an ambulance.

 
A few minutes after the cops left, two EMT's arrived, and I decided to let them in just to humor them, and so that they could see for themselves that the babies and I were just fine.  They did look at us (didn't touch us though) and commented that we all three looked great, and one of them commented that homebirth was becoming less uncommon, after they asked us a few questions.  They then left, and I thanked them for their help.  They were very nice.

Yeah Almi, I think I read about this! Did you talk about this somewhere else? I think it's so horrible when someone you know and are supposed to trust turns on you.

 

Sometimes I think it seems even worse when people who don't really know you have to butt in and try to mess with you, just out of being ignorant and meddlesome. At least with people you know, you can usually know what to expect and there is at least some pretense of or perhaps genuine concern. I think no matter how misguided, people we have in our lives may mean well which is typically more than you can say for strangers. And, there is the chance for forgiveness and understanding afterward, rather than those who don't know you and aren't seeking that-- and are only looking to stir up trouble. :/
