I only want hubby. I am sure his mother will try to worm her way in, but i don’t want anyone other than him, and the doctors or nurses.

Stephville:  My DH was in the delivery room with me and he hates hosptials they make him squimish. Honestly your FI would be at your head and won’t see a thing.  My DH did awesome and was completely fine.

Just my husband. I’m not into the whole entourage thing. My H is not squeamish, but there is no reason for any guy with an overly sensitive stomach  to be overly nervous. He can stay up by your head and does not have to see anything he doesn’t want to see.

So add to that 2x Neonatologists 2x Registrars 2x Resus Doctors 2x Neonatal Nurses and tragically enough, I had my very own super, super, super good looking doctor!! I mean that good looking that in Labour I noticed… lol

I only wanted my husband there. My sister and mother would have killed to be there but they both are pretty high strung and I wanted zen haha. Like a pp said, you can have him up near your head if you think it would be too much. Just a tip though…my water broke and continued to leak during the entire 26 hours I was in labor I required a lot of care down there (changing sheets/towels etc.) but you can easily just have him stand outside for all of that.

I orginally wanted just my FI. But somehow my mother ended up there. *rolls eyes* We have a difficult relationship so I didn’t really want her there. My grandmother also came to check on me a few times, but she was only there because my grandfather was in the ICU at the same hospital and she was visiting him and heard I was there.

Just DH and the doctors. I had to have a C-section, though, so my situation was probably a bit different. From the beginning, I only wanted DH to be in the room with me. My parents were both at the hospital waiting, and I saw them right after DD was born. I wouldn’t have wanted either of them in the room with me, even if that had been an option.

Mostly just DH.

I was induced, my mom came up and stayed in the room with us for quite awhile.  My dad also arrived and stayed for a couple hours.  They left when we were ready to push though, so mostly it was just DH and a nurse with me for that.

OB and more nurses show up right before baby is about to come out.

My DH always said he would stay up by my head before labor but the nurse put him to work (he got to hold my good leg).  So he saw pretty much everything except he couldn’t watch my epidural (apparently that is one long needle) or episiotomy so I think he turned his back for those.  Labor is really gross and there are lots of fluids the whole time, but I couldn’t imagine not having DH there for that.

Right now, I’m planning on just my husband and our medical team.  I’m up in the air about whether or not I want my mother there – my parents would like to at least be at the hospital, and my mom has said she’ll be in the room if I want her there.  I need to talk to DH and get his input on whether or not he thinks it would be a good idea (if it would be better if it was just an intimate thing between us, becoming a family of three, or if it would be good to have my mother there for additional support).  I know my mom wouldn’t stress me out – she’s low-key, a nurse, and has had three natural births herself – I just don’t know what I want right now.

My husband was there. I didn’t want my mom or anyone else. I told him he could stay north of the border if he wanted, but he ended up watching our son come out. I think he helped by holding one of my legs, but the details of labour are all a blur.

I had only my husband in the room with me, and for all future pregnancies plan on having just him! However, in your case..I don’t think he’d bbabble to take it… Not to sound gross but there’s like toons of blood and goop and possibly poop and pee and your water too…it’s not a pretty sight. Also my hubby said the room smelled so bad so I tnk that might be too much for ur poor husband! I’d probably still want him to try and be there though and have him be up by your head no matter what position ur in so he doesn’t have to see EVERYTHING! Good luck!
