    2 for me in manchester, for me that would be my dear Mummy and of course the baby's daddy :)
    Although whilst I am in labour I will be cheeky and ask if my sister can come in too (because I need her ahaha lol.)

    It just depends on the hospital or birthing centre, went for a tour at my hospital on sat an in the midwife led unit you can have as many people as you would like but i think if you are in the consultant led unit there are more restrictions x

    I always thought it was just the two but when my friend gave birth she had 4. Its the same hospital as I am going to (and have been previously) so I was surprised. I wonder if its more of a case by case situation with 2 being the said guideline.
