I was watching a TV show and was thinking about when I get pregnant and have a baby. Who would I have in the delivery room? I know for sure my husband will be in there, but what about my mom and MIL? Is it weird to have them in there? I know they would both love to be there, but I'm not really open with my mother and to have her see me like that just seems weird...espeically my MIL. Maybe I could have my sister in there instead...but then I know my mom would be disappointed.
With my first i wanted my husband and me only. but my sister boo hooed until i left her go in. she was a teen and started having sex so i figured it would be a wake up call. on the day i went into labor and was about to deliver the MIL threw a fit and asked if she was ging to see the baby born i was in no mood to argue do to no medicine. so she was in there along with my mother which was only fair. my MIL had a camera which i disagreed with. and yes it was weird after the fact to have her in there. my sister did not see much but she had a sore hand. I didn't agree with the camera but liked having the pics. With my 2nd only me and my husband was in there and we made it clear way before delivery.
With my first i had my partner and mum and like you im not really close with my mum but it was fine she stayed at the head of the bed and was really supportive and to be honest there was that much going on it was the last thing on my mind, but with my second it was just me and my partner as my mum looked after my son and it was a much calmer experience. I was adamant i didnt want my mum to see me like that but now looking back i think it helped us bond a bit.
When I gave birth to my son, I had my boyfriend and my mother in the delivery room with me.
It didn't feel awkward or weird to have my mom in there with me, Im glad she was there, because she and my boyfriend helped coach me through the whole pregnancy, she held my hand the whole time too.
I think its all a personal prefrence on who you have in the room with you.
For both my children's births my bf and mom were in the room. My mom filmed my first and it was a great keepsake for myself. I wanted the same for my second, but the hospital told us last second that cameras were not permitted yuntil after the birth process
Hi Ladies! This is such a big question! If you take the wrong people in with you, you could find yourself embarassed, frustrated or just worried about the people around you. This is your time for you and your bubs. So think carefully about out who is the right person to experience this miracle with you.
I have 3 beautiful children and a fourth on the way. I decided to have my husband there to experience the miracle of birth, but needed my mum there to support him more than me. And my lovely sister was my strength and support. And with number 4, they'll all be there again (but this time they all should know what to expect) Good luck all of you xx
