A few posts back about family in the delivery room has got me thinking again. Why on earth do MIL's, sisters, etc WANT to be in the room during delivery???? I don't get why this is such an issue. Yes, newborns are cute and it's a special moment, but holy cow if I ever have a daughter or DIL, the last thing I'd want to watch is a baby come out of her. Yuck. It's pretty messy business. I wouldn't even want a mirror to watch myself. Why aren't they just happy with seeing the baby 3 minutes later when he/she is all cleaned up and wrapped up cute in a blanket?
