I'm wondering when you called or notified your immediate family about starting contractions/labor, or if you would change anything or wait. With my SIL, she's called them when shes situated in the hospital, and close in contractions, almost in active labor. When the baby is immediately here, she calls all of the family members in. All 3 instances with her children, my FIL's gf has pushed everyone else out of the way, to be the first to hold the baby. This really upset my SIL, and I don't want the same thing to happen to me.
I also read posts where family members don't leave, and are shooed out of the room once she starts pushing, and a minute later is back in the room holding the baby for the next 5 hours. I feel like that might be a possibility with some of my family members. I love my family, but I think labor, and the first few hours of the baby being here should be for the parents. How did you deal with pushy family members?
