We just asked people to kindly keep their opinions to themselves. When that didn't work I was like "It's not something up for discussion and your opinions are not wanted or needed." There were a lot of people who we knew would not be supportive so we just didn't share our birth plans with them. It is hard. My older sister kept saying she was scared I would die but then wanted to be at the birth (I did not invite her). I just kept the negative people away while Talbot was growing and while I labored. My mom was freaked at first but after she met our midwife she was 100% on board and even offered to let us birth at her house. It takes time for some people to adjust and some people still won't change.
Everyone around me knew i would be having a homebirth the next time we had a baby, supposedly everyone was fine and trusted my decision, until we got pregnant, and now everyone is freaking out about it! I am not changing my mind, but it would be nice if certain people would accept and support, like my mom... At least my husband is on the same page with me, that is one person I don't think i could handle being against it!
