Sorry your family can't allow you the peace involved in reaching your own decisions. I'm the Nana...and try hard to stay out of these issues...not always totally successful at it. But truly, our daughter and SIL make well informed decisions that work for them!

My family is incredibly supportive and my grandmother was a nurse-midwife up in the interior of British Columbia in the 1940s when doctors were hard to come by (they sort of still are). But I think home birth scares them a little. I figure if we do go ahead with one there's not much they can say after the fact. Although, at my midwife appointment yesterday she told us that both her and her partner will be taking holidays towards the end of December (at different times) so if there is only one of them and they are already attending a hospital birth then we will have to go there but she said the odds of pretty slim.
