    I am not a big fan of getting my picture taken (not many women are) but i don't want to make the mistake of banning cameras from the delivery room then realizing i would actually like to have had some pictures taken.
    Should i just put aside my shyness :blush: and just have my mom bring a camera and take photos?

    I say let her take photos, just tell her what pics are off limits. You may want to look back with your lo and show them pics of the moment they arrived. :winkwink:

    With my first We did have the camera there because I wanted photo's of our daughters first few seconds and minutes of life. One thing I do regret and will do this time is I will have pictures taken of me during labor as well. I look horrid in most of the after pics and sure I did during too but looking at them now I dont care how I looked. They are the most amazing pictures of my baby girls first moments of life.

    Camera yes, video no! Most places (at least here in the USA) will not allow video recordings but will allow photos. Definately try to take some photos, even if you aren't feeling great, they are great to look back on and your child may want to see them when they are older.

    yes definitely take pics... with my DS my mom was with me and my OH and my mom took pics but only from 'my view'!! So nothing too graphic... but it's amazing to have a record of the day.
