I think I finally got DH to agree to a homebirth. We went through the BMJ article on North American homebirths Wednesday. I had one of his co-workers, I work in the same building, come up to me today and go "Steve says you are having a home birth". I didn't think he had agreed but I guess it is offical <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Now if I can just secure a midwife.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/clap.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="clap"> Yay! I'm so happy for you!! What a funny way to find out he's on board, but great all the same! It's funny b/c similar things have happened between DH and I. He'll just kind of bring up something as if it's understood or been decided and I'll go "wow" I didn't know you had even agreed!<br><br>
I wish you all the best! Planning a HB feels a little overwhelming at times but soo worth it. Of course, this being baby #1 I have nothing to compare it to. But I'm sure I'd probably be a lot more nervous planning a hospital birth, especially if I had wanted a HB and never got DH to agree. Thank God for DHs who can be convinced!!

That's funny. I had a time convincing dh that homebirth was the way to go, but as soon as he was on board he was telling everyone. Not that I care, but I don't really go blurting it out unless they ask.<br><br>
Congratulations!
