There have been lots of baby posts about who you’re planning to have in the delivery room and I’ve noticed lots of woman have mentioned having their Moms in the room with them. I am wondering what’s making people choose to have their Mothers in the room (along with DH)? and for people who had their Moms in the delivery room were you happy with that decision?

I had my mom both times! When it came down to it my mom was so much more help then Fi was. If i were to have any more babies my mom would still be in the room.

I probably wouldn’t because I’ll likely swear and my mom would be mortified. 🙂 I think when that time comes, I am going to ask my SIL to come be with me, along with Darling Husband.

I had an emergency c-section with DS so noone but DS’s dad was there BUT had I had a normal delivery she would have been, and had been in the room while I labored.
This go round she’ll definitley be here!
My mom is pretty much my best friend, she keeps me straight when I act dumb, and is incredibly encouraging & affirming in the things I’m capable of doing.
Darling Husband is all of these things as well, but I feel that having them both with me here at home, with no meds, would be beneficiary.
I guess it’s just that next to Darling Husband she’s my go to person.

Dear God, no! I want my husband there, and if we decide on a Doula, of course she would be there, but no way in he** would my mother or his be in that room! I love my mother, I love his mother. But to me that’s something that should be shared between a couple without other family members and friends being brought into it. They are more than welcome to sit in the waiting room or to visit after the baby was born.

I’d like to say it will be just me and Darling Husband, but realistically, I’m gonna want my mommy!!!!

@Miss Apricot: I totally agree. If other women want to have their moms, sisters, aunts, friends, etc. in the room, more power to them! But that’s just not me at all. Darling Husband and I are both in agreement that we want it to be just us plus any key players (like the doctor or midwife).

There’s is a good chance I will never need to make this decision, but I would only have Darling Husband in there.

No. My mom and I don’t really have that kind of relationship. We’re close, but she’s a very… private person and really raised me to be the same way. Honestly last time it was fine with just my husband in the room, but my family wasn’t there. This time it would be nice if they could at least be there at the hospital when she is born.
ETA: I know I totally just said “When she is born” lol. I guess it’s no secret that I’m hoping for another girl!
