I always thought when I was younger that I would want my mum with me and my OH but now I only want my OH with me, he is the only one I want there and to share that special moment when our LO is born

I cannot wait

I'd want my Mam there - obviously FOB as well.

My Mams had 6 kids, 4 vaginal and 2 caesarean I think, so she'd be fantastic for support either way!

I too think about this a toooooon! I had previously decided that I would, of course, have my dh, mum and MIL. I wanted my mum b/c she has had 4 kids and we're close & my MIL because I'd feel like it would leave her out if I didn't. After thinking it over, I know her (my MIL) and I don't think she would even WANT to be in there

SO, I have decided for JUST my dh. It will be our first child and I want it to be OUR special moment without any interruptions from outside family members. I know that my dh will be strong & supportive & just the man he needs to be when the time comes

I'd just like me and DH to be there, and midwife of course. I know my mum would fuss too much and make me anxious and snappy.

I'd always said I only wanted my husband with me as it would be such a special time for us but when the time came I wanted my mum there too. It was her first grandchild and I knew it'd mean the world to her to feel needed and wanted at that time. I'm so glad I asked her, she nearly cried.

I ended up with an emergency c section so I was only allowed one person to come into theatre with me so I took my husband while my mum waited for us.

If I was to have a natural birth next time around I'd want them both there again and if I have another section then I want it the same as before.

I was talking to my mum about this the other day (she doesnt know we are WTT) as she was in with my sister and outside the theatre with sister in law. She was really taken back when i told her i only want my OH there and her my dad, and OH's mum and dad in the waiting room. I dont even want my brother or sister or OH's step mum there just both grandparents and OH in the room.
