Sorry you're having to deal with that right now. Will your mom be at this birth? I think it's important that you let her and your DH know that their negative energy is affecting you--that's not something you need while in labor! Good luck.

I didn't hear a word from her regarding homebirth #3!
But there's always someone ready with their "...if I hadn't been in the hospital my baby would have died" story. And sadly, after listening to most of those stories, it's likely the big emergency was caused by the hospital interventions in the first place.
