Hi hun, where I am there is a policy of only one person in the delivery room with me. Although where my sister is the policy is two people.
You could always phone the hospital and ask them xxxxxx

Generally 2 are allowed, but my midwife told me it depends on how many the midwife wants in there. Mine told me she's happy to have as many as I want in there to have a little party!! But I won't be doing that, lol. Ill have OH, my mum and maybe my sister xx

Generally it's 2 but some allow more. I hope they allow two because I want my OH and mum in there.

I had 2 with Mollie My mum and my Aunt.

2 With Taylor.. OH and best friend,

1 with Katie just OH.

4 is prob too many as labour can be chaotic and medical staff need space to work but im sure step mum and Dad can wait in the waiting room.

I wanted it to be just my husband and I but my mother in law works at that hospital and has already made it clear she will be there too, which I dont really mind either way or I would make sure I locked the door lol. I had 2 in with my son even though they told me I could only have 1. You can usually ask your dr in advance though, they will tell you how many you are allowed but I agree that 4 is likely too many.

Hey, didn't want to read and run. Sorry I can't help you out as I live in the states and I had 3 ppl in the delivery room with me. My mom was there for most of my labor and my sis and grandma got there about 30min before I delivered. This time around, I think it may just be my mom and OH since someone will have to stay out to watch DS.
