I had my OH and mum in with me.
OH quite frankly was shite! He just moaned he was tired and slept in the chair till i started pushing! Then came stood next to me.
My mum arrived 15mins before i had harrison and she was a huge help. She held my leg coz i had cramp shes also given birth 3times so i felt comfortable knowing she knew exactly what i was going thru and what i needed to hear x

I think I'd want my my OH there but he'd be no use as I'd want a relaxing kinda thing and he'd stress me up, weirdly enough I don't think I'd want my mum there but I'd definitely want my best friend Hannah there as she's like a sister to me and though she has no children and no experience I know she'd try to relax me and calm me down as much as possible

I know I would not, under any circumstances, want my mother there. She's good where she is... in another province!

OH would be there of course. I would like to have backup for him though. My best friend that is over seas right now, if it worked out, then her for sure. But if not my sister wouldn't be too bad for a second choice. She's pretty good at taking care of things when she needs to, especially if it was her time to become an aunt

My sister would be great too as she has had two of her own and is kind of down to earth and I know she would keep me calm but the problem is she lives in Ireland as well.
I will definitely have my OH but I expect that he won't be calm as he will be all worried about me. Who knows he might surprise me.

I just want my OH. My mother passed away, and as much as I want my Grammie to be in there, I REALLY dont want my MIL there, she drives me NUTS to save myself from drama I've decided to just have me and OH

Definitely DH and my mom. I don't know how DH will handle it so I might need my mommy for support!

I was thinking about this the other day! I would definitely want OH there, but think he might be a bit useless dealing with the tiredness of waiting around (esp if it's a long one!), and probably won't do great with feeling a bit helpless too. I'm in 2 minds if I'd want it to be a special moment just the 2 of us. I also like the idea of mum being there- she'd be fab, although would never shut up talking which might get on my nerves!!! Also my sister would be a fantastic option!! Love her to bits and we have a very special relationship- she can't wait to be an auntie, and I can't wait for her to be auntie to my kids
