Hi girls, Was just wondering - who would you like to have with you when you give birth? For those of you with husband/partners - are you having your mam there too? Or are you banning everyone? I'm not sure if I want my mam there too.....will it be too much?

I thought you were only allowed 1? DH is the only one I want with me

I know I am thinking a bit far ahead, but I would have just DH in the delivery room, but Mom would no doubt be close by as she was with my nephew - the minute by nephew was born, my brother brought my mom into see him and the bond was unbelievable and still is - she still talks about it. peronsal choice I guess, but I think if my Mom was actually there for the whole lot I might get too emotional

Only DH. Wouldn't want anyone else.

Yeah, I agree with ye...I wouldn't trust my tongue - I would feel guilty if I roared abuse at my mam when in pain (DH doesn't matter....only joking!). No doubt she will be on the other side of the door though, waiting to see baba.

Mama Dora, I know - I just couldn't handle that. I saw one video where the DH, mammy AND doula was there. WAY too many people! :eek
