  • For many as I wanted but with my c-sec I was only allowed to let one in...obvious choice being my husband.

  • I had to have a c-section so I was only allowed to have one person. My sister just had her baby (natural) a few months ago and she was allowed to have as many people as she wanted.

  • During my thirty hours of labor before they finally gave me an emergency C-Section, whoever...and there were a TON of people there....husband, mom, midwife, the obgyn on duty at two separate hospitals, and like a total of (between two hospitals) almost twenty nurses. There was NOTHING else going on except for me. In the surgery, just the surgery team and one, my mom.

  • at both hospitals we were allowed 2 ppl, the first baby it was just my SO, the 2nd it was my SO and my mom

    i went to teaching hospitals so we also had med students and nursing students... itw as a mad house!!! my first delivery i had 2 sets of students, the other woman last minute refused them, so i allowed the extra 5 students in..... so 10 students 4 nurses and 1 OB, plus a peditracian and 6 peadicatric nurses...

    2nd was 12 ppl, i dont remember what they all were i had a drug free, not by choice, birth and wasnt paying attention

  • As many as I wanted. If they're going to put a limit on it, you might want to consider moving to a different hospital. Or hell, a home birth :D

  • I was only allowed 2. And they were my spouse and my mother.
