  • i would explain the situation to her first to see if she could understand it from a differnt perspective!!
    and then if she didnt get it i would tell her that its not her baby and if the mother giving birth doesnt want her there then there is nothing she can do!!!

  • You didn't make this choice, the ones giving birth did, and want you there for a reason. She shouldn't be upset w/ you. Maybe tell her that you are sorry if it hurts her, but its not up to you, you are just doing what others asked.

  • tell her that is between her and your sis why she didn't want her there you just did as your sis asked of you

  • honestly try telling her her the truth i do agree with everyone else you did not call your sis and sis in law and say HEY can i see your baby be born lol they asked you. My MIL doesnt drink at all and neither did my mom but i was embarassed about them seeing my goodies and they were both upset because neither were allowed int here just me and my fiance were i ended up needing a csection so it worked out only 1 person was allowed in but if my mom was a drunk and i wasnt embarassed of people seeing my goodies i can say that i would have rather had my sis in law then MIL we are closer and if i needed someone i would have asked her for sure

  • dont feel bad..enjoy getting to see your nieces and nephews being born, it is the moms choice on who is in there, not the grandma.
