I kind of have a unique situation as MIL is the OB charge nurse at the hospital I will deliver at. I know to most, you wouldnt dream of letting your MIL all up in there but honestly, I think you'd feel differently if yours had 30 years experience and seen a TON of vaginas. plus I feel like I'll get the best care since I know all the nurses through her.
Anyway, DH is a fire fighter and unfortunately been at work during the two birthing classes I've been to so my mom has been with me. I had a friend tell DH and I yesterday that when she had her baby a couple months ago, it was the best decision she ever made to only let her dh be in the room.
Although my dh continues to let the decision be made by me alone, I can tell he really liked the idea of my mom not being there. Although I adore my mom I kind of agree. My only issue is that we wont be alone since MIL will be in there. I know this will hurt my moms feelings as I am her only child and a FTM. Also, shes the only one whos been to lamaze with me....
What are your thoughts?
