    Who are you having with you when you give birth? Im just having my OH as I want it to be a private moment for us. A few people have said I should have my Mom there too. I dont really want her there (not in a bad way) She would just fuss far too much.

    I'm just having my OH. My mum was my birth partner when I had James but she wasn't much help bless her. I'm not sure she felt very comfortable about being there when it came to it

    I was only thinking about this tonight :think: Im planning a homebirth so OH will be there but Im thinking about asking my Mum to come too. She's had four babies and she finds birth a doddle and I know she'd be great and Id feel really relaxed with her being there :)

    hmm..

    defo my oh. my mum gets really queasy at things like this though, she said she would end up getting upset bc i'll be in pain then she'll get angry at oh because it's his fault :rotfl:

    if everything is going smoothly, i want just the one midwife to be there, as i'll panic if there's too many people.

    OH will be there. He can't stand the sight of blood and has already had doubts over whether or not he can cut the cord. I'm sure he'll be fine but if not then my mum will be there.

    My OH will be with me.. and also my Mum..
    I have specifically asked OH to tell everyone else to STAY well away from me, and the hospital.
    I have a horrid feeling....well its more of a what IF.. I had to have a c-section.. or something happened.. and I was out of it... other people would be there, seeing my baby before me... (is that selfish??)

    Also.. after all that hard work.. would like just OH and me to be alone marvelling at the little bundle of joy that we then had :)

    (quote suziq)="and I was out of it... other people would be there, seeing my baby before me... (is that selfish??)"


    lol :rotfl:

    not selfish at all.

    lee is under strict instructions, if anything happens and im taken to theatre etc etc he is NOT to invite parents down etc as i want to spend time with baby before anyone even sees her. plus i want our little boy to be first.

    id be furious if in laws were with her and i was on some operating table! :rotfl:

    I'm hoping just my OH, I wouldn't mind my bum being there while I'm 'Labouring.' My sister got it into her head that she will be there throughout the whole thing, watching baby come out..no chance!! We're not even that close, and she lives in London..she got really upset when I told her it's not what I wanted..I'll be doing all the wrok, so I should decide, and I just want my OH there so we can have a private moment.
