Silly cow! That woman - not you!

This bit made me laugh...
"We wish to give birth safely and quietly in hospital with as little fuss as possible."

I can't imagine anywhere being LESS safe, quiet and fussy than a hospital!

When I was planning my homebirth, which unfortunately didn't happen, most people I told of my plans said they'd love a homebirth but just weren't brave enough. So personally I think that woman's view are in the minority.

I love her comments about sandals and breastfeeding until secondary school. I may have even considered reading till the end if it wasn't for that. TBH I find it funny that an opinion like that could even be considered newsworthy.

Mad Mad Mad Mad

I'm not going to comment in depth because I literally could be here all day, this is a subject very close to my heart and I'm very passionate about it. Also I'm typing one handed because Lily is having a clingy day, lol!!

Suffice to say I'm "spoiled and complacent" after having Lily at home. And given the oppoutunity I'd be spoiled and complacent again thank you very much, it was fantastic!

Good for you Claire. It's about what is right for you, not some stuck up woman who thinks only her views count.

A friend of hubby's has a baby due, was due on Saturday infact. We went down to see her and the midwife had just been to deliver her birthing pool for her home birth. I am soooooooo excited for her. Wish it was me again! I really hope she gets her home birth. And she wasn't wearing sandals, she was wearing Ugg boots!

Her midwife does. Think I'd have had to hire/buy one if I'd wanted one but don't have the room for one anyway.

I bought mine, it's a La Bassine inflatable pool and it was soooo big and comfortable. Before Lily was born I used to set it up in front of the telly in the living room and have a bath! It's now packed up in the loft but we may get it out in the summer and use it as a paddling pool for the kids. And of course I'll use it again the next time I decide to be spoiled and complacent!
