I am curious to know who everyone is having with them during labor and delivery, or for STM who did you have with your other births?
My hospital allows 4 support people. I had planned on it just being my husband and I, but a relative asked me if I was going to have my mom in there (in front of my mom) I said no and my mom said she was planning on being in there. My sister in law invited her for her birth, but she wasn't able to be there because they live out of state. She wants to be in there with me more as a mom to make sure I'm ok. (I'm her first daughter to have a baby.)
I love my mom, and don't want to hurt her feelings or have regrets later on, but I've decided she definitely won't be in there for the delivery. I'm considering allowing her to be in there during the early stages of labor, but am not sure.
Sorry for writing a book! Interested to hear who others plan on inviting!
