    Goodluck I had my first baby at home in May. It was fierce and beautiful and so lovely to just be so comfortable in my own space. I gave birth at 6.39pm so we just had dinner then hopped into bed after as a family

    That's wonderful. I'm glad everything went well.


    I told my parents. They don't really like the idea and they also know almost nothing about homebirth except for what is in the media. Fortunately they respect my decision and at the moment I don't think they'll try and convince me otherwise! I have thought about taking my Mum to meet one of my midwifes as one of the pp suggested; mostly she is just worried which is pretty natural for a mum.

    It took Mum about 5-10mins after I told her I was pregnant to ask which hospital we were going to!

    My mum has met both my of my homebirth midwives (I have had two homebirths, and a different middie attending each). She loved it! Loved getting the chance to meet the person "taking care of me" and both times she got all teary and huggy. LOL! I think it is natural for parents to worry about anything and everything, I know my mum would also have worried if I gave birth in hospital.
    I'm glad they respect your choice and wish you all the best on your pregnancy & birth journey

    Yes, that is an excellent idea to get your Mum to meet the MW, I'm sure it will ease her mind no end

    Thanks for all your help, I just wanted to update the thread if anyone comes across it & wonders how it all went.

    I had a beautiful homebirth on the 22/01/14 and can't imagine how much more stressful it would have been if I had been going into hospital. It was lovely being in my own space, on my own time & having a great support team of my DH & two midwives around me. Homebirth was definitely the right decision for me. Hopefully now my parents might be a bit more open minded (though my Mum thought I was being irresponsible for having a physiological third stage and a bit weird for wanting to eat the placenta)! Both bub & I are going great.

    Eta: I did take my Mum to meet one of my midwives several times & it did help her understand the current medical/obstetrics care & intervention rates etc in a hospital (as opposed to what it was like 25+ years ago) and think it helped her feel more reassured that I was in good hands.
