I’m glad the midwife was supportive, especially if you’re facing resistance from your family. Glad to hear everything is going well!

Great to hear your apt. went well. My first apt. will be at 10 weeks also…and isn’t until Sept 29 🙁 How are you feeling health wise?

I’m having that same issue with the natural childbirth! My family was very supportive but everyone else I mention it too tried to talk me out of it like its this crazy hippie thing. One of my co-workers actually asked me if i’ve “changed my mind yet.” She thinks I’m going to have horrible problems and die in my house. lol (I’m going to have a natural homebirth) The midwife I’m using is super excited for me though. I hope yours goes well!

My mom doesn’t get why I want a natural childbirth either, she had epidurals with both me and my brother.  I can’t wait to tell her we are thinking about doing it at home and will be using cloth diapers too 🙂  

I think it’s awesome you are going natural and wish you tons of luck (not that you need it since, you know, it’s what your body was built to do!)

Congrats on the first appointment. Sorry people aren’t being supportive. I am sure lots of people on the bee will be supportive for you if you need an ear . . . computer screen?

Anyway keep us updated! Congrats!

Your first appointment! So exciting. Gkad to hear all is well!

So far my mom is the only one besides us that knows and she supports our decision in breastfeeding, cloth diapering, and making our own baby food, but it will be interesting once we tell everyone else what they have to say.
