  • most hosptals now have security for the labor and delivery area so if you want to be alone they have to go by what you say. but it is his baby too so its kinda his right to be there, but it is all up to you

  • yeah you have that right but why wouldnt you want him there so see the birth of his child? is this your first? you would need to tell him that you dont want him there

  • You have the right to choose who you want in the room.The nurses/doctors want you to be in the right environment mentally.Please just think before you make a really drastic choice-are you just mad at the moment about something,are your hormones making you easy angry about little things,etc?I would hate for you two to work things out later & he'd use this against you forever.Also if you work things out you'd always feel quilty that you could never get this unforgettable moment back.If you do go through w/ it make sure to talk to someone at the hospital BEFORE you go into labor.This is where security would come into play.Good luck & don't stress too much.

  • yeah its def up to u and especially if hes not going to add to a pleasant birth u should be able to have things calm and peaceful for the birth of ur child tell the nurses all the names that u do not want to be around u or ur child
