There’s a good article by Cath Elliot today in which she attacks those who try and tell mothers where they should give birth:
“Thinking of having a home birth? Don’t be so backward and selfish. How about an elective caesarean? What’s the matter with you, too posh to push? And don’t even get me started on the breast versus bottle-feeding debate. It seems that no matter what parents do, or what decisions they make, there’s always some sanctimonious do-gooder somewhere ready to tell them how and why they’ve got it all wrong.”
Providing there aren’t any health risks, I don’t see the problem with home birth. This is just another example of the hectoring attitude that many people take to legal activities which they frown upon.
