DH and I have made the decision to have a home birth with this kid (our second). However, we don't want to tell anyone until after we pop out a healthy baby in the living room. Both our parents would be completely unsupportive and would flip out even if I said it wasn't up for discussion and the same would happen with our friends. Our parents won't ask any questions beyond how my prenatal visits went so that's fine, but we have a couple sets of friends that are really interested in random stuff like where we're delivering (they're gearing up to have kids in the next year or two so they ask a lot of questions). So far when they ask what hospital we're using and things like that I just say I don't know, but I have no idea how long I can keep saying that. Is there anyone else who had a home birth and didn't tell anyone until after?
