L&D room.

I’m having trouble deciding who I want in the delivery room since the father and I aren’t together. (LONG STORY). Please help. 

Re: L&D room.

  • People to think about are close friends and family members. You want one, two people tops. (That's all that's allowed at my hospital anyway.) 
    Keep in mind that you will want this person to attend birth class(es) with you and be informed about the birthing process. You'll want time to talk to them about your birth preferences. 
    Most importantly, this has to be someone you trust to understand and help communicate your choices when (possibly) pressured by medical staff. Someone who won't panic in stressful situations so that you can focus on yourself and your baby.
    Good luck and good health!

    Don't know your situation but I would choose a sister, best friend, or mom. Someone you're close with that you don't mind seeing you at your absolute worst.
