Just my husband and doula. I couldn’t handle anyone else seeing me in that situation. I was in too much pain, plus i was completely naked!

It’s just going to be DH and my doula. those rooms are small enough without trying to fit your whole family in there! 🙂

It was just my husband and I.  However, I called my mother towards the end because he was just so exhausted and famished that he needed a break.  Funnily enough, my mother was more squeemish than him.  It still cracks me up the look on her face.

My exhusband and my mother were in htere for the actual delivery.  Once I had my eidural, my dad was there too, while I labored.  He left for any cervical checks and when I pushed.

For the birth of our son it was only my husband but when the next time rolls around I would like my mother and possbily sister in there as well.  Last week i was able to be in with my best friend when she delieved her second child and it was amazing to see, all natural as well.  It all depends on what your comfortable with and willing to show and to who see it’s it.  Everything happens so fast that sometimes you need an extra mind in the room as well.

DH was there. I’m sure others have said this, but your DH is unlikely to see anything that will make him squeamish. And my understanding is most men who think they would be grossed out by childbirth, if they give it a chance, are actually interested and want to see their child come into the world.

Stephville:  I only wanted my husband in the room and in the event he wasn’t there for the birth (pilot so in and out of the country) i was going to take in my mother. In my experience i only wanted my husband. I felt so exposed and everything is on show. I was in so much pain. I would not feel comfortable with anyone else.

DH was there and he was actually very nervous of seeing certain “things” lol. He basically stayed right by my head but as soon as the baby was out he was following her wherever she went! He did mention that he saw my placenta come out and he totally regrets it lol!!
