Who would you want with you when giving birth?


Or if you've had a child who did you have with you?

I would love if my mom would be there but she lives in Ireland and plus she said that there is no way that she could handle it.
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.

the only people i know id want there will be my mum and my OH.

my mum is brilliant in any situation and i think will be able to keep me calm (to an extent anyway plus it will be her 1st grandchild) and my OH for obvious reasons lol.

i dont have any sisters, i do have a little brother, but somehow i dont think having your brother at the birth is quite the same as having a sister there

I want my DH in there with me, and I am on and off about my Mom. I think when the time comes and the decision is to be made, I'll make it with my DH and what he is also comfortable with.

I know my mom won't be there with me, she couldn't even be with my sister when she had her boy. I think maybe just my OH. And maybe my best friend. Those are the only people I'd feel comfortable with.

Ive got to be honest I love my mum to pieces and we have a fantastic relationship but i only want my hubby-to-be in the room with me. Its mine and his baby so thats why i feel it should just be me and him. But thats just me x

I want it to be just me and hubby. I don't want anyone else - I want it to be just me and him. And it most likely will be considering my parents live in NY. My one sister lives in TX and my other sister will be overseas.

I have friends that I have thought about maybe having in there but I really just want it to be us 2.

I would just want my OH, and my mom, no one else allowed at all. My mom actually agreed that if i am in colorado when i do end up getting pregnant that she would fly out to be with me in the delivery room =) if she can't come it'll only be OH.

When my sister had my nephew she had her now exhusband and her best friend at the time in the room.

I had my OH and my mum in the room with me.

I wanted my mum in the room, because I wasnt sure how my OH was going to cope, so she was there for both OH and I. She was wonderful, I had my mum one side, my OH the other, I loved it.

I think next time I will just have OH, but not 100% on this. Plus I would have to get someone to look after Amara so my mum might end up doing that. Also, if my OH cant get back from his job in time, then I would have my mum and no one else.
