I often wish someone would feel more open to ask me questions regarding the safety and psychology of home birth. Do my friends and family care? Are they afraid to talk to me? Is it a moot point to them? Isn't anyone as curious and enthusiastic about this? I feel like I HAD A BABY IN MY LIVING ROOM and no body is different. Is that making any sense? Like, what do I expect? And yet, not a wave of interest, not a tiny splash or wave has really come of it. Do they think I am LUCKY, CRAZY, COOL, BRAVE, STUPID, ANNOYING, AWESOME, or anything? I want to talk about this! I want to field questions! I want people to ask me "IS it safe?" and all that stuff. I want people to ask me "What if the baby was breech?" or "What if ____" anything!
I have this blog set up to accept anonymous comments, so maybe some thoughtful soul will fill my urge to discuss this on ANY level, no question is dumb, rude, or anything.
Here's to hoping!
