Do you judge people who have home births?


Yesterday I was at my SIL’s house. We were talking about her new neighbour and I asked if she thought they’ll be friends (they’ve both got similar aged babies) and she said ‘I doubt it, she’s a home birther’ and then winked at me. I questioned her and turns out she heavily judges people who have home births for being ‘hippies’ and putting extra pressure on the emergency services if anything goes wrong.

I have never in my life judged a woman for how she chooses to give birth and have always thought women who give birth at home are very brave.

So I’m just wondering if any other people feel the same, or if my SIL is on her own in judging ‘home birthers’?
