FAQ

Q1. Are you going to find out the sex of your baby this time?
A. Eventually, preferably before their first birthday even. We were luckily enough to discover that Oliver was a boy moments after he was born. But no: not using an ultrasound.

Q2. Haven’t you heard the flu shot was proven safe for pregnant women by x and y study?
A. Only by every person ever. Must have been the quickest study ever if they formulate a new flu shot every year based on the predicted strains, am I right?

Q3. Aren’t you scared to have no doctor attending your birth?
A. I had no doctor attending my brief teenaged interests in snowboarding, paintballing or uninformed veganism either, and I lived.

Q4. Are you just trying to be a hero by avoiding pain medication?
A. No. A super-hero.

Q5. Why aren’t you having a home birth?
A. To be honest, I likely am depending how fast my husband can drive. I am going to have a home-labour I suspect and then we’ll see what happens. My real reason is that the hospital has giant, warm tubs and I am too lazy to set one up in my living room.

Q6. Aren’t you worried your son will be teased for not being circumcised?
A. Only by the 29% of his male peers who are. The other 71% should be on his side.

Q7. Shouldn’t you stay in the hospital for a few days after your baby is born, just in case?
A. Just in case I want a viral infection? Just in case my bed at home is too comfortable?

Q8. What if your breast milk isn’t enough for your baby to gain weight at a normal rate?
A. I will swiftly decide to never again look at a normal growth chart, and then continue nursing continuously.
