We’ve found that the most effective way to get someone on board with your plans to birth at home is to set up an interview with a midwife, even if your partner insists there is no way a home birth is happening. Usually their fears are motivated by 1) love and concern for you and the baby, and 2) not realizing home birth midwives are highly skilled birth professionals who are trained specifically for attending birth in the home setting. The interview will allow them to ask the questions that will put their fears to rest. Pinterest is a great resource for finding interview questions. The midwife interview has turned many skeptics into believers!
