I'm hoping to find someone who has had an experience with having older children present during delivery to tell me how it went. I'm due oct. 2, and my children will be 8 and 5. My 5 yr old brought up the subject of being in the room when the baby is born. I told her she would come in right afterwards, and she got upset and said she wants to be there. She even went as far as to promise she would be quiet and stay out of the way. We're just wonder if it would be ok for her to be there if she stayed at the head of the bed so she doesn't see too much. I've had epidurals with the other 2, and deliveries were fast and easy, so we aren't expecting any problems with this one, or much pain! Anyone have any experience with this issue?????
