Hey - I don't post too often but some of you might know from previous posts that this will be our first child and we're planning on UC. Also, we currently live in China so we will be having our baby here.<br><br>
I just wanted to share with ya'll how proud I am of Dh. He has met a couple people at his new job who are also foreigners residing in China whose wives have had babies here. They always seem to have some reason why their children's births didn't really go the way they wanted it too. Usually because they chose a hospital and the doctors and nurses were overbearing plus throw in the language barrier and there are some serious tensions/communication problems.<br><br>
Anyway, so he was listening to this one guys story and Dh says, "Yeah, thats why we're planning on having our baby at home," and proceeds to quote from books, articles, etc. about the problems with hospital birth, i.e. C-Section rates, episiotomy rates, having to lay on your back, being hooked up to a million things, complete loss of control, etc. All of which, of course, he has heard from me!<br><br>
Anyway, the guy he was talking to was really interested. Apparently he and his wife had had a midwife assisted waterbirth in the UK for one of their four children's births and loved it. So he was really interested in the idea of UC and about all of the reasons why two new parents would choose UC over the "safety" of a hospital.<br><br>
I was really proud of DH when he came home and told me. It's great to have someone so on board with you. Just thought I'd share.

yay for men who know their stuff! i love love love it when i hear dh quoting UC stuff. it shows me that he really cares about me and our baby, and it makes him look soooo much smarter than the people who are trying to give him scare tactics. the fact that your dh might be helping another couple is just great big gobs of icing on the cake! ::high five:: for having such great dh's!!
