DH was insisting I hire a MW for a HB last week.He knew and was alright with my not going to a hospital he was just worried about taking responsiblilty.I had told him I was the one who would be responsible.<br>
I did find 2 people here who do HB. I just have been putting off calling them since I don't feel I need them and I figure the chances are slim that they would be free in the next couple of weeks anyway.<br>
DH and I talked again and he asked me why I wasn't trying to hire someone yet?I told him because it wasn't important to me as it was to him. he asked me what was my plan.I told him what i felt/knew would happen from beginning to end and how I would handle it.I reassured him that I wasn't expecting him to do anything if he didn't feel that he could (hes a fainter at the sight of blood).I can do this.He asked me why didn't I have any books about this since I have all kinds of breastfeeding books and that seems really easy.I told him that BFing isn't always that easy and that this is like pooping your body will do it on its own with or wqithout you.There aren't any books about how to take a crap and nobody supervises although there is a small chance that there could be an emergency.I reminded him again that he has seen me give birth twice and how easy my deliveries are.He asked me what I was going to do with the other kids, wouldn't they get freaked out? I told him that the only one I would worry over would be our youngest since she wouldn't understand why I couldn't hold her right then.They also watch alot of baby shows and births along with me since I am a birth junkie so they are used to some of the sights and sounds.He mentioned yeah, you're kinda quiet so you won't scare them.I also showed him what I had done to prepare.<br>
yippe I am so happy that I didn't have to do a lot of presentations on why my way is best!I know he feels odd but I don't think he feels any different than when I started BFing.
