You may know that I planned on giving birth to my son at home. Jack was born on March 26 in the same hospital where my older son was born after a medically-advised induction of labor at 41 weeks.

I know I have a pretty sympathetic audience usually, people who know me already in some capacity at least. And I tag my posts with Attachment Parenting and other crunchy-sounding terms that aren’t likely to attract readers who have opinions opposed to mine.
