I'm sure this is answered here somewhere so please give me the links. I just don't have time to search. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br><br>
I have never had a UC and its not something I feel is right for me and my family BUT I truly believe that everyone has to make the right choice for their own families. So to get to the point...<br><br>
I have some friends who were talking about how irresponsible it is to not have a medical person at your birth. I tried to tell them that some feel its safer to have no one around but I don't think I did it very well b/c I've never BTDT. But I'd like to get them to see your reason for UC'ing if I can. These ladies do listen and are open to other things if presented right and I don't want to present it wrong. KWIM?<br><br>
So how would you explain it?<br><br>
Thanks ladies.......

When i was talking about UC, but still not sure, one of my friends was very against it and kept trying to come up with "alternatives" for me like, "Can you park the RV in the hospital parking lot. Then, you are still in your own setting, but only feet away from help if you need it."<br><br>
Eventually, I told ehr I changed my mind and would be going to the hospital just to stop her worrying.<br><br>
But, I couldn't do that forever and our plans were revealed. She protested and pleaded.<br><br>
But, in the end SHE was there for the birth! Just me, DH, and her!<br><br>
And, it was amazing!<br><br>
So, give them some time. They need information but it doesn't have to all come at once. And if they never understand, then just remember that, well, they don't have to. It's your family. As you said, each makes the decision based on what's best for them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
