Coincidentally, we told my boss (51 yr old man) on Friday. He was very, very happy for us. He asked if we had gotten a doctor yet and I said, "Well, I have found my midwife," wondering just what would progress from there. Astonishingly, he said, "Oh GOOD! There is no reason for a normal, healthy woman to need a doctor. That's just great!!"
I couldn't, for the life of me, believe I heard that. Nobody I know is that supportive. I (we) have been on Cloud 9 over that, and the many other positive comments he made on Friday. Sooooo exciting.
